It turns out that mk/ believes that wxGTK28 and wxGTK30 may not
be installed at once, so the algorithm is to use DEFAULT if it is in
accepted, and otherwise to fail.

But, 28 and 30 do install at once.  On my system things that use wxGTK
use 28, but freedv and audacity are hardcoded to use wxGTK30's bl3,
skipping the framework.  This is only not a mess because 28 and 30
actually can be installed at once.

So my question is really:

  Should we just change the default to 30?  How much trouble would that

and my new question is:

  Are we willing to assume the wxGTK variants will be parallel
  installable, and if so, should each package just pick the best one,
  and we get rid of this, or at least ignore it for a bit?
