Thanks for the instructions; just what I needed. They'd be a good addition
to that part of the website.


I'm building with debug support turned on, to see if that helps with triage.

The current sources won't build with gnome support turned on. I get lots of
'unknown library: gal' messages, and it quits with error 2 while trying to
build part of the gnome UI.

If I leave gnome off, pspell support will build, but AbiWord then refuses
to run, claiming that the library doesn't exist. It does,
and it's in the same place as all the other pspell libraries (presumably
the default location: /usr/local/lib I think).

I'm running LinuxPPC 2000 Q4, with the SuSE 2.2.18 kernel.

So, I guess I go back and build it with both turned off, in the hope that
that will run. Any suggestions as to what the problem is welcome,
particularly in the pspell case. (Do these problems count as bugs?)
