Just one comment, on the Makefile:

You should probably change this to be more similar to the handling of
DF_PROG. I.e. use

  EXTRA_PROGRAMS = df chauthor


  mkfifo mknod mv rm rmdir shred sync touch @CHAUTHOR_PROG@ @DF_PROG@

in the bin_PROGRAMS list. Then have configure.in use AC_SUBST to set
CHAUTHOR_PROG to a suitable value, based on the existence of the
author field in struct stat or something like that (iirc, you already
have configure tests for that).
