I can at least report that it does work on Ubuntu (8.04 beta);
after installing a bunch of dev-packages for WxWidgets and OpenGL,
I was able to compile it and run a couple of the demo programs, but
I have not had any time to experiment any further. (See the screenshot;
I've no idea why the frame is missing though - seems to be a bug in
the Gnome screenshot utility.)
