I gave the installation an other try. Taking into account gtk+'s configuration
output I installed the following modules manually:
but then gtk+'s compilation failed with an error on a missing definition for
GHashTableIter. Well, went back and pulled the latest glib (2.22.0) and
installed that. Now gtk+ compiles successfully and so it does rep-gtk and
sawfish! But I have not yet tried to run anything, therefore, I still do not
know whether all this convolution works or not.

Would sawfish still work without rep-gtk? What would I be missing without it?
.. Use sawfish 1.5.1, it uses rep-gtk 0.18x (0.18.6r2 is the latest and
last), 1.5.2 only has one minor change in the Crux theme, doc updates
and compatibility with rep-gtk 0.90.0, so you won't miss much when using
1.5.1 instead 1.5.2, though 1.5.2+/1.6.0+ will require rep-gtk 0.90.0
and therefore gtk+2.12.
But you may try installing gtk+2.12 (and co) from RedHats SRPMS, that
Without rep-gtk you miss: all menus and SawfishUI (SawfishConfig in
1.6.0), so this is kind of no-go.
