FWIW, it works fine here with GNOME/Oroborus. It also kinda works with
WindowMaker (corruption on the root window) and GNOME/Metacity (X server
crashes sooner or later).

Not sure either, might be as simple as pointing it to a 32 bit compiler,
or maybe a full cross-build is needed.

I'm using xcompmgr 1.1.1+cvs.20041109-0ubuntu2 and the Ubuntu 6.8 X
packages, so if you're running X from CVS HEAD, there might indeed have
been a regression there.
