    Just to be clear. I don't actually think this is mine. At least, they
    never talked to me about it. Mine is covered by XFree license, so they
    could have just compiled it, but I don't think so. Supposedly this
    version doesn't perform the same as mine.

    Right. It's non trivial, but it is progressing. I sure how to get it out

    Those are correct. Here's a small plug. The website covers everything I
    can find about 3D for Linux including my work, of course. If people know
    other pieces I should add, please email them to me.
