Hello,
I've got some trouble building sawfish-1.3:
After configure without any obvious problems when compiling sawfish-1.3
the procedure ends up with the following last lines:

[...]
/usr/include/rep_subrs.h:545: note: expected 'const u_char *' but
argument is of type 'char *'
main.c:205: warning: pointer targets in passing argument 1 of
'rep_string_dup' differ in signedness
/usr/include/rep_subrs.h:545: note: expected 'const u_char *' but

make[1]: *** [main.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/sources/X-libraries/sawfish-1.3/src'
make: *** [all] Error 1

Because this output looks inscrutable to me I've got no idea about the
reason why.
I had installed all required dependencies (rep-gtk-0.18, esound-0.2.41)
without errors. I'm following BLFS html-Version svn-20091115 after
successful building of LFS-6.5 on a 686-machine.
I've builded the X-server too and twm is running properly.

I will be very gratefull about any help.
Thank you
Stephan
