X Windowing System Under Dope

Is there a "how-to" on configuring the X Windowing System for running
under dope? If not, I'd be happy to write one up afterwards, if someone
could help me through the process...
I am interested in running the X Windowing System from within L4Linux on
my existing DROPS workstation (currently using my existing distribution
-- Debian Sarge) on native hardware.
With Adam's previous help, I have managed to get everything else
(fiasco, dope, l4linux with networking) up and running perfectly fine.
I see from the Nitpicker demo on the Demo CD, that xorg.conf is
configured to run the OvlScreen device driver, and xinitrc runs an
ovltrack process, however i didn't see these binaries get built as part
of the usual drops build process.
I did find an ovlscreen.c in the examples directory... is there a
separate build process for generating the binaries to use under
l4linux? How can I build ovlscreen and ovltrack for my system?
Is Nitpicker required or is it optional? I noticed there is now an
l4ovlwm, in addition to the nitovlwm binary referenced by the demo cd --
however, i don't see a nitdope binary that the demo cd references. Has
this been integrated directly into l4dope, or perhaps no longer supported?
Am I missing other pieces as well?
Thanks in advance for any help you might offer!
