Depending on who is putting together the compilation and who the potential artists are, there are lots of possibilities, and you basically mentioned them.
Unknown artist on compilation CD with lots of support = free.
Well known artist on any compilation CD - either flat fee, or somewhere between 7-8 cents per manufactured copy (standard mechanical licencing rate)
Which is best for you depends on how much clout you have (or at least are perceived to have), and how much clout the artists involved have. It sounds like you have prior experiences. Depending on how those have fared out, you might be able to give the artists involved some assurance that they will be successful, based on your track record... or not.
Really depends on what the best deal you can arrange is.
