This web page is outdated (as it clearly says) - the CGAL ipelets are 
now inside CGAL, and as far as I know they work with Ipe 7.

I guess that depends on what exactly you want to achieve.  Generally 
speaking Ipe doesn't support Boolean operations on objects, but one can 
often simulate intersections using clipping paths (which, as you 
observed, are currently broken).  Unions can be simulated by composing 
paths (this is also currently broken, for the same reason).
