Update wiki directions to 3.0.4 for build C::B

Good or bad idea to update wiki direction to using wxWidgets version 3.0.4?

I think the wiki should be updated to use the system default wxWidgets installation. Does something speak against it? I mean every up to date distro has  a wxWidgets that should work with codeblocks, without compiling it by our self, why bother the user with the whole process to compile and install it?

Yes, the native lib should be preferred. Everything else causes problems to novices.
