With the attached patch (thanks Hubert for asking about that!!!) I can
finally build abiword on Yellow Dog Linux (PPC) using the Red Hat rawhide
spec. The final reason I used the Red Hat spec rather than the abisource spec
is because the RH one is fully able to be built as a user, while the abisource
one wants to install to your running system (not very polite).
In the future it would be very helpful to folks like me to have an
AbiSource-supplied SRPM that is known to build correctly.
At any rate, I look forward to configure (never thought I'd hear myself say
that). Great work on the word processor, and good luck on the build system! :)
P.S. Is it "abiWORD" or "abiSUITE"? A lot of confusion there.. RH ships
abiword, you guys build abisuite...
P.P.S. cc me on replies; must lower INBOX flow. ;)
