about sound support
If there's audio with these puppies, then I'm not hearing them, which is not a problem.

However, if there is audio and it is being compiled by default, is there a way to disable this for a speedier binairy?

Lovely stuff.

PS, to preview in a non-root window, descend into the source directories and run from the commandline.

I found that the screensavers didn't work properly with xscreensaver unless I added a line '#include "vroot.h"' to c_src/driver.h, using the utils/vroot.h file from the xscreensaver distribution. The preview is still broken (it shows up in the root window instead of the dedicated preview window, because the screensavers don't accept the '-window-id' parameter that xscreensaver-demo passes to them), but at least they work otherwise. And they're absolutely GREAT! 8-)
