There is, but you'll need to create a wrapper script. If you look in
XAbiWord's Aqua preferences panel you'll see the various environment
variables that need to be set. You should probably set
BROWSER=/usr/local/bin/dillo (or whatever) as well.
If you have a fink or GNU-Darwin install lying around, the /sw/bin/abiword
is probably just such a script. The XAbiWord bundle is designed to be
relocatable and the XAbiWord wrapper is basically a Cocoa implementation
of the script...
The real executable then is /path/XAbiWord.app/Contents/MacOS/AbiWord_d
which is a pure GTK application
So, yes, it's doable. If you need help, I can probably dig something out
