After updating to latest git-master 2197f9d10e8841ab97d919ff6fcde5bb9721c6ce, a build regression in wxAnimation::GetFrame appeared.


static void bar(const wxAnimation &a)
   const wxImage img = a.GetFrame(0);  

Adding this piece of code to the animation-sample from wxWidgets and attempt to compile it gives

$ make -f makefile.unx 
`wx-config --cxx` -c -o anitest_anitest.o -I. `wx-config --cxxflags --unicode=yes --static=no --toolkit=gtk2 --version=3.1`   -MTanitest_anitest.o -MF`echo anitest_anitest.o | sed -e 's,\.o$,.d,'` -MD -MP anitest.cpp
anitest.cpp: In function ‘void bar(const wxAnimation&)’:

In ed077e17c/git-wxWidgets:

Restore wxAnimation::GetFrame() constness

This got lost, almost surely accidentally, in 706c8e8ad6 (Merge branch
'disable-native-animation', 2020-04-07), so just restore it now.

See https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/pull/1768

Closes #18725.
