Thanks, changes made and rebuilding now.

1. I have separated these onto another line. I've kept this enabled for
manual testing, and also because other things in my Cygwin install need
some of these dependencies - I can't easily remove to be 1000% sure that
none of them are needed during building. It seems wxWidgets hasn't
documented optional build dependencies very clearly.

2. Good point, I have removed this.

3. As above, I have added this.

4. Okay, trying that in this build. Not sure how to test that any
features need that are working, so I'll have to research that.

Extra: I'm also trying to build with gnomevfs now, seeing as that Gentoo
bug is very old, and I suspect the issue has since been fixed. Will have
to figure out how to test this as well, but it looks like many things
will outright crash if this problem occurs.

I'll wait on the CI system then, this takes hours to build even on my
Ryzen 3600, especially on 32-bit Cygwin.
