actually I compiled it meanwhile by myself. the tarball novell released 
compiles fine against Xorg7 from the repositories.
You only need glitz(not sure about that) and glxcompmgr from cvs.
The server itself runs quite good, but glxcompmgr crashes from time to 
time. But this is neglectable since compiz should be out any time soon.
