Glad to hear it. sawfish also uses <rep/rep.h>, so if you took the other
route, you would need to modify even more. It looks a bit silly in
the file already:
  includedir= includedir@/rep/
includedir is not @includedir@ ? It should be.

Sorry for not mentioning that, but that's pretty much always required if
you use anything that calls other binaries, and those other binaries are
in a non-standard location; even if a pkgconfig file is provided.
Depending on how exactly you are compiling, you may similarly also need
to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /opt/sawfish/lib.

The KDE4 problem has already been answered: that, unfortunately, simply
cannot work with an install in a non-standard location, so is best
