WindowMaker is kind of picky about modifier keys (0.18.1b is *lots* pickier,
that's one of the reasons why I haven't released it yet). You may want to
use xkeycaps to find out wich key is Mod1 and Meta. I have the right control
key set to Mod3 and Meta_R, and I tell WindowMaker to use mod3 for the
modifier key in ~/GNUstep/Defaults/WindowMaker

	ModifierKey = mod3;

(easier than using xkeycaps, type xmodmap at the prompt)

I ran into this... for some reason the patch doesn't have this... hmmfff...
try adding "CC=g++" to the Imakefile. Run xmkmf -a, then make. Or install
the packages (they are in slink, in the utils and sound section)

Yes, I haven't heard from Sam in a long time...
