olvwm on amd64

Dear Colleagues,

Is there any chance to have the olvwm maganer working on an amd64 machine? My users use the manager for 10 years already, and they do not wish to change it, but on the other hand, I can't stand with i386, as 4 Gb of RAM on the server is far too little.

The problem is with xview library that, as they say, cannot be compiled for 64 bit. But probbaly, some of you know a way to overcome it?

Thanks in advance,

P.S. Maybe at least you know a WM that resembles olvwm as much as possible?

Well, depending on time you're ready to spend, I bet it is possible to configure x11-wm/fvwm2-devel to be almost the same feel and look (if not Identical) as olvwm.
