Well theoretically it should be enough to just re-compile and use it,
however its quite likely you'll run into some problems:
* Maemo's X server has sometimes a bit different ideas how things should be
* No input is possible for plain X applications, for now you need to
use GTK if you want to access 770's virtual keyboard.
* You need a bit of hildon-specific knowledge for packaging, icons,
etc but thats not too hard to figure out.

But in theory it should at least work.
