You can manually add the bind to your ~/.sawfishrc as suggested by dmg
or you can use the Sawfish configuration interface (sawfish-ui).

In my case I use the left mouse button pressed with the "Super"
modifier (usually the key with a windos logo) to resize the window
clicking anywhere on it, using the left mouse button with the Meta
modifier (the Alt key) I can move a window clicking anywhere on it.

So open the sawfish-ui, go to the "Bindings" section, select the
"Window" context and click on the "Add" button, select the function
you are interested (in this case "Resize window interactively") and
associate a key/mouse combination, in my case the bind is
"Super-Button1-Click", you can manually insert it or you can use the
"Grab" button, it will (try to) translate the next key/mouse
combination with the corresponding string.

Hope this helps.
