If this question is more appropriate to the development list, I'll repost it

Does anyone have any basic tips on compiling AbiWord from source code (on a
debian system)? I tried compiling from the upstream sources available on the
webpage. That compiled for about 10 minutes before ending with some error
messages I couldn't resolve.

So I tried the sources from 'apt-get source abiword'. That compiles for about
2 minutes before ending with some different errors I can't resolve.

Before I go into detail about the specific error messages I recieved, does
anyone have any basic advice/rule-of-thumb for getting it to work?
