If you are putting cork on extruded foam insulation, you might try latex caulking. Regular white glue is water soluable, and you risk breaking the bond later if you use water-based scenery techniques. The latex caulk is waterproof when dry, bonds to non-porous surfaces (i.e. styrofoam), cleans up with water (before it is dry), and is also paintable in case some goes where you don't want it.
I used green contact cement from Lepage's. (bought at Cdn Tyre). You must get the green solvent free stuff, or there won't be any foam. (I used mine with the rubber roadbed, but it should do cork well.) Just that it sticks instantly -- no wiggle room. Apparently it can be broken, but the cork may come apart first.
