AfterStep on Suns

I have just recently pulled down and compiled (most of) AfterStep
1.4.5.0 for Solaris 2.6. I was just wondering if there are others out
there on this list with AfterStep/Solaris experience (or who didn't even
get as far as me and need help :-)). So far I have working:

Modules:
Banner
Clean
Form
Ident
Pager
Save
Scroll
WPager
Wharf
Zharf

Sound modules compiled but I haven't bothered testing them since most of
our machines don't have sound. Form module doesn't seem to like being
invoked from top level in menus, but works from a sub-menu (don't ask me
why).

Applications
afterstepafterstepdoc
asclock
asfsm
asmail
asprint

The others all failed to compile, but I haven't really been bothered to
find out why, since I was mostly after the window-manager itself.

Other issues are:

1) openwin tools (cm, mailtool, filemgr etc) lose their icons (becoming
a solid block of openwin background color) if moved.

2) the usual stuff related to 256 color displays - mostly worked round
this now.

Colin.
