I don't think Window Managers have distrobution dependencies so it's most likely upgradeable to latest version (3.0.1).

The maximum you'll have to do, IMO, is to export the correct variables and/or install the needed shared libs.

You'll have problems too if the packages were compiled against XFree86 4.0 and you're at 3.3.6 (At least I had: YMMV).
