You missed the 's' in "please" ;-). (Sorry couldn't resist)

./configure might work, but the ../wmx-5sec4/configure won't work. Pleeeaaasse
(*auf den knieen rutschend*) include my patch for Remote-configure. I compile
up to 10(!) diffrent versions of wmx (Solaris/Sparc, Sol/x86, NetBSD and
diffrent Linux Distributions) so that's *really* useful, believe me.

Cool. I'm not quite happy with the change myself. I think there has to be a 
more elegant way to do it. Please send me a pre-release for testing and

I think a quick and good selection during compiletime should be enough.
Everything else is bloating the code up too much. BTW: If I can't get the
compiled code of wmx below 100kB (stripped binary). I'll start stripping the
code via #ifdef until I get it below the 100kB line.

There has also been a discussion about the removal of the shape code. If anyone
would want that he should look at flwm. It's a wm2 ported to fltk. The URL is
