Xvnc source is designed to work with pretty old monolitic XFree
source. I've forked vnc free edition about 2 months ago as project
'baracuda'. You will see https://fedorahosted.org/baracuda/ and
mercurial repository http://hg.fedorahosted.org/hg/baracuda. Now
nearly all things works as expected with latest Xorg source (except
borders of windows aren't correctly rendered but you will help me
to find how get it fixed)
