footprint wizards do not need wxPython.

I am usually building kicad on W7 with wxPython support off, and I do not have 
issues with wizards
and external plugins.

Only plugins that use a wxPython graphic resources can have issues, and I do 
not know if they exist.
So for most of users, wxPython support is not mandatory.

Phoenix is for tomorrow, not for today.

It was not buildable on msys2 when I tried to build it.
I hope Phoenix will use one day cmake (wxWidgets 3.1.1 can be built using cmake
