Do "ordinary" X applications work, e.g. can you run "xterm" or "xclock"?
That would help determined whether this is something specific to Amber or not.

Try leaving out the "-static" flag: if there are problems, it's usually seen
at compile time (not run-time), but other x applications are working, its
worth a try.

People have been running xleap for 20 years or so, so it is probably nothing
specific about the age of your distribution.
