I compiled a new version earlier today using the final release of FC5. I uploaded these a second ago and I'm testing them now, but the compile seemed to work without issue. You can download them here (http://files.thelinuxpimp.com/) if you want to try them out.

They installed fine for me and I have been successful in connecting to one FC5 machine's nxserver from a Windows nxclient. Had some issues connecting to a seperate FC5 machine, however, which was installed via an upgrade from FC4.

Note that, according to Rick Stout, the original packager, the "nxclient" portion of the install isn't currently enabled, this is due to errors caused by the modular xorg included with FC5. Hopefully he'll be able to work his magic soon enough and get a new build going that allows both client and server to function properly in FC5.
