I can tell you something about some of them, but not all.

This happens if configure is executed by bash, and /bin/sh is not bash.
If configure is executed by (for example) dash, a dash-compatible
libtool script will be written.

That said, you're probably right, the $(SHELL) should be removed in
LIBTOOL and rep_LIBTOOL, but it was added by libtool.m4 (part of libtool
itself), not anything in librep, so needs to be fixed there.

The Makefiles in the subdirectories use VPATH so that mkinstalldirs in
the librep root is used. makepp doesn't understand VPATH.

to /path/to/your/sawfish/dir/lib/pkgconfig. When librep installs its .pc
file there, it will be picked up from rep-gtk's configure script.
