Yep, there are build instructions here:
Sorry for the slow response. I've just updated the instructions to use
more recent versions of X.org and to be based on SHR (though your
choice of distro shouldn't matter), and I wanted to check that things
A very recent version of X.org is needed to use mixed mode pixmap
handling, which speeds things up a lot. However, the dependencies are
quite nasty so I'd welcome any feedback on whether the instructions
work or not. You can build with a slightly older version (1.6.0
works), but it'll be a bit slower .
The binaries linked from that page are out of date - I'll update them
shortly if anyone's interested in this "lazy option".
 Actually, I think I just broke compilation with older version of
Xextproto (7.0.5 and older). Some sort of version test and conditional code
is needed to deal with a change in name of dpms.h to dpmsconst.h.
