Subject: Fully operation (albeit non-Aquatic) AbiWord on Mac OS X

From the makers of small but none-the-less-exciting patches,...
The attached patch makes it possible to build AbiWord *nix-style for
Darwin/MacOSX. I have just had the immense pleasure of seeing my favourite
word processor in action on my (currently Linux-free) iBook.
Feeling all tingly now.
Runs on X, of course. I use XDarwin(Quartz). Speed seems okay. Actually
faster than my x86 (which isn't saying much, considering the clock speed
is less than half the G3's speed...).
Tricky bit is getting glib etc. to compile, but it's all doable. Once
# PLATFORM="NetBSD" ./configure --prefix=/whatever/etc.
# make install
If anyone's interested I'll post detailed instructions.
