xterminals - cut and paste.

I tried to patch the xterm source code so that I got cut and paste support in xterm (yes, yes I know there is some cut/paste functionality in xterm, but it's not very easy to use when pasting from an outside aplication and into xterm or vice versa) anyway, I got some errors when I tried to compile it.

I used this guide

Does anybody know how to compile it properly.

I can't post the errormessages. Can't make a screenshot either I don't have enough room on my screen.

Can anyone reccomend a lightwight xshell with proper cut/paste functionality

Not sure what you mean by "proper".
rxvt (ouR XVT) - a VT102 emulator for the X window system
supports copy / paste in a similar fashion to xterm ... cheers, makyo
