Found it.  --with-rep-prefix=

You will need seperate installs of rep.  That should at least install
the sawfish c libs into a separate instance of librep.  That configure
flag also sets up the cflags, libs and execdir of rep for sawfish.  I
would hazard to guess that sawfish currently links against the librep
libraries and loads the lisp system itself.

The ideal situation would be the "sawfish is just a lisp script"
approach but for this code base we will have to stick to librep being
embeded.  Maybe in a future revision....

As a side note, how do you get gmail to work well with the mailing
list?  the webclient defaults to replying directly to the user instead
of the list.
