Meanwhile I have looked at the GTK 2.4.x documentation and found
that symbol to be removed as documented. 
I tried to find out if there is a stable version of wx2.4 for newer GTKs
from wxwidgets.org, but had no luck so far.
It strikes me as rather odd, as those changes could not be that problematic
and wx2.4 still is the official stable version.
Maybe somebody should try to ask on their mailing lists or search
more thorougly.

Thanks a lot for trying!
As I wrote about, my information was that GTK would be binary
compatible in the 2.x.x series, but obviously this was wrong. :(

If you feel adventurous you could try to build gtk 2.2 or rebuild
the source RPMs of the gtk from Mandrake's 10.0 source GTK or from a tarball.
On the other hand, the patch to wx2.4 should not be difficult.
