Did you do a "make install" in the abiword/abi directory (as root)? The
first make can be done as a normal user (as with ./autogen.sh && ./configure).
The "make install" as root should install the binaries and associated files
within /usr/local, assuming you did not change any configuration defaults.
Note that the plugins require a separate compile and install, and since all
are not yet operational (this is an ongoing project, mind you), at least on
my system require some tweaking for success.
Good luck, the effort is worth it.
