Yes, I'm running it at home on a Linux system and was running it at work
on my Sun.  Although its been a while and I don't remember the
installation process intimately, I don't think I had any problems at all. 
Just download the gzip'd tar file, uncompress/untar, and follow the
installation instructions.  If anything it seems that these days its
easier to build things on a Linux system than on a Sun!  Don't worry about
things if you have some trouble.  This is one of those applications that
won't mess up anything else on you system if you build/install it and have
problems.  TkStep just won't work, but nothing else should be affected. 
But, as I said, it should build just fine 'out of the box' so to speak.

I'm using fvwm2 as my window manager so I believe I start TkStep from the
initialization clause in the .fvwm2rc file.
