Probably you have dual architecture configuration x86 + i386. Warning
during update could be ignored but:

sudo apt-get install sawfish

fails with:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 sawfish : Depends: libfontconfig1 (>= 2.9.0) but 2.8.0-3ubuntu9.1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

probably due to fact, that newer package versions were available on
unstable debian than current ubuntu.

Something like this worked for me

export CONFIG_SHELL="/bin/bash" # important for libtool problem

for each librep rep-gtk sawfish perform
   apt-get source <pkg>
   sudo apt-get build-dep <pkg>
   cd <pkg-src-dir>
   dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
   cd ..
   sudo dpkg -i <created.debs>
