To compile you need header files, not just the actual libraries. The header 
files are found in the *-devel packages. So you would need both wxGTK and 

When you install and run a precompiled package you don't need the headers, 
only the libraries.

However, in the case of roadnav I don't see that it requires wxGTK:

[[email protected] ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i wx

Then, one by one:

[[email protected] ~]# rpm -q --whatrequires compat-wxGTK26
no package requires compat-wxGTK26
[[email protected] ~]# rpm -q --whatrequires wxPython
[[email protected] ~]# rpm -q --whatrequires wxGTK
[[email protected] ~]# rpm -q --whatrequires wxGTK-gl
no package requires wxGTK-gl

And in fact if I do 

rpm -q --requires roadnav

again I don't see anything about wx.

At any rate, I have it installed on F8 and it crashes when I try to set
an address. It worked fine in F7.
