sawfish, dual head, x86-64

	Hi all,

I have tried to build sawfish on my AMD64 box (Fedora Core 4). The RPMS of
librep, rep-gtk, and sawfish are available at

	The sawfish package I have compiled seems to work, but I have
problem with dual-head setup. I have a dual-port VGA card, and run my
deskop as screens :0.0 and :0.1 (i.e. without Xinerama, just a display
with two screens). It seems that sawfish does not manage the windows
on the secondary head (:0.1), only the windows on the primary head.
Is this a bug or feature? Can sawfish be used on dual-head setup as well?

	I had to do the following changes in order to build those
packages - maybe they should be integrated to the main tree:


My autoconf does not know AM_LC_MESSAGES - I have simply commented it out:
--- librep/    2005-11-14 16:22:33.000000000 +0100
+++ librep/ 2005-11-14 16:21:42.000000000 +0100

rep-gtk and sawfish:
both CVS versions contain too old config.sub (or etc/config.sub in Sawfish).
I have just replaced it by config.sub from my automake distribution. The
error printed is as follows:

> configure: error: /bin/sh etc/config.sub x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu failed


rep-gtk and sawfish:
These two packages complain that AM_PATH_REP in rep.m4 is underquoted (while
running ./
