[winswitch] Help building xpra for openSUSE 11.4

I have a workstation that uses openSUSE 11.4. I'd like to install xpra,
but no package exists for this old OS.
Unfortunately, it also seems that, since the OS support ended so long
ago, xpra's dependencies are not even up to date. So I cannot build xpra
myself, unless I build the dependencies as well.
I can't build the dependencies in their default locations because I
don't have root access, so I'm left with a mess of shared object files
and linking issues. I've been bashing my head against this for a week
and not making much progress. Every dependency I try to build has its
own dependencies, which I often cannot build either. I've gotten so far
as to have to re-build gcc and glibc from scratch. But my existing gcc
is so old I'm having problems!
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can make this less painful?
What I'm hoping to accomplish is a statically-linked binary that I can
build and run from a network share. Does such a binary already exist
somewhere that I can just download?
