Fwd: How to install Sawfish in /usr/local?

I could have sworn that sawfish has it's own lib-exec directory for
lisp code and compiled modules.  I am not currently at my computer so
I can only speculate.  Have you tried some sort of --lib-exec flag?
It is also possible that sawfish is auto-detecting where librep is and
installing modules into librep's libexec directory.

This does raise the question, how would we want sawfish to interact
with librep?  Should it be a set of modules and lisp code that is
installed into a librep system (the sawfish executable being a
"#!/usr/bin/rep" script) or is it a separate program that embeds
