This was my experience as well. Everything else I've tried seems okay,
but that's just xbase, xlib, and the S3v xserver. I used the fonts from
the previous version, because they were already installed. The existing
fvwm2 package seems to be broken, but I got enough of it installed for
it to be useable.

Thanks for making this available; now if I could just get PPP working,
I'd be in business.
