window maker "make" / "make install" problem

i decided to try out windowmkaer 0.92.9, after downloaded the tar and extracted, i ./configure, and after when i type
"make" or "make install" from the root or the user, it always ends up with the a few of the same error lines.
x86_specific.c: In function 'x86_mmx_TrueColor_32_to_16':
x86_specific.c:107: error: can't find a register in class 'GENERAL_REGS' while reloading 'asm'
make[2]: *** [x86_specific.lo] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/max/WindowMaker-0.92.0/wrlib'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/max/WindowMaker-0.92.0/wrlib'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Is windowmaker not available via yum? This would be a much easier way of installing it. Version 0.92.0 seems to be available in FC3.
