It's failing rather horribly. Macros are gone from but not
from the code, meaning sawfish doesn't actually use Xft/Pango, meaning
sawfish crashes at startup complaining about invalid fonts. One
particularly important macro is HAVE_X11_XFT_XFT_H; it needs to be

I had the same problem. It's a combination of two things:

  - Firstly some of the AC_DEFINE calls in are missing
    a third argument which means autoheader aborts without updating
    the file.

  - Secondly runs autoheader before aclocal, which means
    that it may not see the up to date set of defines that need to be
    added to when it runs.

If both those things are changed and is rerun then a correct will be created.
