   * Byte compiler bugfix in docstring loss [Teika Kazura]

     Practical effect: Previously, if a user byte-compile files, then
     the docstring is lost in sawfish-config. This is fixed.

     Details: Loss of docstring happened only if (1) byte compiler is
     not given `--write-docs', so only byte-compilation by user (2)
     defvar is invoked within macro definition, including `defcustom' in
     Sawfish. Plain defvar was not affected by this bug.  It was
     because in 'trans-defvar' in lisp/rep/vm/compiler/rep.jl, the
     docstring is stored in a wrong property `variable-documentation'.
     It is corrected to `documentation'.

     Symbol `variable-documentation' is not used elsewhere, including
     Sawfish and emacs' sawfish-mode.

   * Our own implementation of dlmalloc is disabled since 2002, as it
     breaks librep on several architectures. From this version on, we
     don't ship it.  [Kim B. Heino]

   * Our own implementation of alloca/memcmp is not needed, rely on
     libcs instead.  [Kim B. Heino]

   * Majorly improved the debian and rpm packaging scripts [Christopher
     Bratusek] [Kim B. Heino]

   * Install headers to $includedir/rep/ instead of $includedir/
     [Christopher Bratusek]

   * Autotools improvements (Makefile, autogen.sh & Co.)  [Christopher

   * Added `file-gid-p' function for getting the gid of a file
     [Christopher Bratusek]

   * Added `file-uid-p' function for getting the uid of a file
     [Christopher Bratusek]


Have fun,
