This program is in debian in the xflip package. (I assume it's the same one,
I can't run the sparc binary you attached to make sure ;-) You can look at 
the source.

What I think it does is, it graps a snapshot of the screen, then pops up a
window that covers the whole screen, paints it with the snapshot it took,
and then modifies it to make it look like the screen is flipping.
