Wow. Sometimes I just don't understand the trouble people take on intentionally. Good job man.

I think mesa has optional s3tc support if you recompile it with some flags.

 and there's also https://github.com/divVerent/s2tc (often called libtxc-dxtn-s2tc or similar on Linux) which provides something like S3TC support without violating the patents

Indeed.    The S2TC option may well be the solution to running Doom / RBDoom 3 BFG with OpenGL32.dll (if I can ever get off my hairy butt and get compiling).

revelator:
also mesa is a software renderer so even if you got it running it would be at an unplayable 1-2fps :S
The best recourse would be to recompile the engine and libs with XP as a target.
