If it had failed, dselect would have told you.  However, fvwm is not the same
package as fvwm95.

Probably not a good idea, unless you have the expertise to compile
upstream source and force it into shape.  That's why we have Debian 

Install package fvwm95.  This should put fvwm95 first in the list in
/etc/X11/window-managers, so, by default, it should start when you
start X.  You can override this with your own .xsession or .xinitrc file.

Xutil.h is in /usr/include/X11; you need to load the package xlib6-dev (bo)
or xlib6g-dev (hamm).
