    currently, Abiword is started with the help of a wrapper script, and the
    actual binary is hidden inside $prefix/libexec.

    The only thing this script really does is set ABISUITE_HOME.

    Wouldn't it be better to hardcode the location into abiword (via a
    #define set by the configure script) and eliminate the need for a
    wrapper script? (possibly allow overriding the harcoded value with this
    env. var)

    That would also make debugging easier, because one could just use
    $prefix/bin/abiword for the debugger, instead of looking for the binary
    in $prefix/share/somewhere (yes, it's in libexec now... but still).
