I'll update that after Debian adds wxgtk-2.6. It's possible that there
are incompatibilities with wxWidgets 2.4 and 2.6, so that CTSim *may*
not be compatibile with 2.6

Eventually, that gets incorporated as AC_SUBST(ctlibs) in the
configure.ac file.

I don't have include file problems on Debian with the straight CTSim.

Just some minor warning fixes for the manual pages. The actual
changelog description is in debian/changelog, but that file doesn't
get included in the generic upstream tarball.

Possibly, new versions of autoconf/automake typically have some
backward incompatibilities. That's why Debian includes versions
1,4, 1.7, 1.8, 1.9 to handle configure.{in,ac} which may not work with
newer versions. OTOH, I've never tired version 1.9 and it may work
