The author actually released a newer version at one point (0.6.1) that
supposedly compiled easier under Solaris, but I don't see it on the website
I've got it sitting here, but I haven't compiled it yet. I gave it a half
hearted attempt one day and hit some problems (or maybe that was in the
compilation of the xclass widgets, it was a while ago now) but since I really
didn't need it at the time, I really didn't try very hard.
Unfortunately I don't have time to reattempt compiling it right this moment,
but perhaps I can try again in a little while. If I can get it to go, I'd
more than gladly provide the binaries.

Several on this list have, I believe (not myself though). Performs slower
than the standard Xvnc but works, I believe.
As a side note, there is also the VNC for XFree86(tm) v4.x project:
that I believe (hm, I seem to believe a lot of things) provides a module for
XFree86 4.2.0 that you can supposedly just drop in on a Linux box to get this
ability to view :0 as well, and quite likely with much better performance.
