Don't know about fvwm.. xeyes will look at the point where the cursor
is. Another cutesy little toy is 'oneko' which turn your root pointer
into a little mouse and creates a cat that chases the mouse when it
moves - might also be helpful in making the pointer easier to spot...
If you don't like cats it can be a dog and his bone too.
