Keep it simple. use prebuilt binaries if possible, the gtk binaries are
simpler than the gnome ones.
There are different varieties of linux, debian, redhat, slackware?
why compile from source when there are perfectly good binaries available?
(which leads me to suspect you are not using RedHat).
You should take this up with the developers, or the developer list or on
the user list is intended more for people who use abiword rather than
building, developing, or patching.
i mentioned that downloads can be found on sourceforge
the abisource website is updated a little less often.
(please excuse me if i seem irratated in this email, im not annoyed at you
but i am extremely annoyed at one of my lecturers who is arrogant and
condescending. he has given us an online bookstore project and the
fucking moron called it Ebook. retard. stupid stupid ignorant retard.)
