I'd care a lot less about ChangeLog if we had a vcs that let
us look at a sane changelog for the project :-)

Oh, OK; that makes sense.

I've just tested, and configure fails with:

checking sasl.h usability... no
checking sasl.h presence... no
checking for sasl.h... no
configure: error: sasl.h not found

because sasl.h is in /usr/include/sasl/sasl.h

I think that's just a trivial error in your AC_CHECK_HEADER
invocation, though.

I think git's UI is pretty foul but it has the advantage
that it's rapidly becoming the de-facto DVCS standard.
I could live with it or bzr.

You have some reason for wanting to move away from
savannah? (they support arch, bzr, git, mercurial
and svn.)
