Re: librep/rep-gtk/sawfish compilation issues

I tried, at last, the latest releases of librep, rep-gtk and
sawfish.  At least on rawhide Fedora installation I had to add
an attached patch to recompile librep.  Otherwise config.sub and
config.guess were missing and ./configure was not going very far.

The real change is added '--install' option to libtoolize. Inserted
in 'AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])' macro is likely not
required but there were loud complaints otherwise. :-)

Just for consistency I used similar options with rep-gtk and sawfish
too.  config.sub and config.guess are supplied there, strangely
enough, so this was superflous in a sense, but I wanted to have some
degree of uniformity.

This is caused by libtool 2.x, for libtool 1.x --install was not needed.

Also sawfish sources provide sawfish.desktop which gets installed
in gnome/wm-properties/.  Two problems.  One is that this file
is not UTF-8 encoded as expected.  The other is that it looks like
that it should be really called sawfish-ui.desktop or something like
that.  As Christopher B. discovered as well with current versions
of gnome sawfish.deskop is needed in /usr/share/applications/
(%{_desktopdir} macro for rpm) and it should look like somewhat in
a style of the one attached.  Then you can set gconf key
/desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager to sawfish
and this setting is followed.

Other than that librep-0.17.2, rep-gtk-0.18.3 and sawfish-
recompiled for me and they even appear to work. :-)


I already fixed both issues in SVN, I could make a hotfix release, if wanted.
