That's probably what I'm going to try if all else fails.
Assuming, of course, that the 0.36 spec file will work
with the 1.0 Sawfish sources (there are multiple tarballs
in Sawfish 0.36!)..

I might. That makes two possible topics for me to
yak about: Apache and RPM. The new reprint of Maximum RPM

Tried that, no joy -- the mdk 1.0 RPM (even the source)
has dependencies on other mdk packages. Bah.
Building a 1.0 RPM from the 1.0 sources and the 0.36 spec
file looks like the best bet so far..
