no, please, don't do that
1.24 is simple and very functional. It does not have bells and
whistles and fancy stuff as 2 has. And that's a plus point for people
fvwm 1.24 is very easy to configure and very fast and has been used
for many years by many users; the result is that it is bug-free and
very, very robust. It does what it is told to do.
The developers don't say it should not be used. They say it is not
supported, but it does not need to be supported, as I just explained.
It is also the default wm of OpenBSD and that should tell you that
there are good reasons for that.
After this small glitch with fvwmrc I do not think that you will ever
have to touch the port.
The whole fvwm is 320K (and the big number comes from the icons).
