It does work.  

I compiled fs2_open from cvs a cuple days ago:

    :pserver:anonymous at warpcore.org/home/fs2source/cvsroot

It has improved a lot.  A few months ago it crashed all the time and was
basically unplayable.  Now it's completely playable and no crashes.  You
should turn all the graphics details all the way up or there will be
graphics errors.  The only other bug I've found so far is that sometimes
the background nebulas will use the wrong bitmap (usually one from the
user interface).
