<dom> aaronl: the packages shouldn't link with libwmf or imagemagik
<dom> you should *not* (i repeat *not*) be trying to link abi with
imagemagik or libwmf. we don't support Windows Metafiles or vector
<dom> there is no need to be doing that at all in abi's code (at the
<dom> at some point, it'll be cool to do a WMF->SVG or WMF->PNG
conversion, but not now
Hmm, I guess that's settled. Although you raised a good point about
how the configure scripts check for it. I think the Abi packages
should run the configure script for wv with --disable-wmf etc to make
sure the packages are consistant.
Wait, actually, Abiword's build system ignores what wv wants to link
to. So never mind.
