    I really like Abiword even thou there is no rpm package for mandrake 8.2
    nor for mandrake 9.0, so I downloaded version 1.0.3 to compile it, but
    everything runs fine (, configure, make) but when it is
    building the package I get this error :

    bAp.a ../../../../src/wp/impexp/libImpExp.a
    ../../../../src/af/xap/libXap.a ../../../../src/af/util/libUtil.a
    ../../../../src/af/gr/libGr.a ../../../../src/af/ev/libEv.a

    -lgmodule -lglib -ldl
    /home/luis/abi/abiword-1.0.3/wv/libwv.a -ljpeg -lpng -lz
    /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ldl
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make[5]: *** [AbiWord_s] Error 1

    it says from what I can si that /usr/bin/ld cannot find -ldl, the last
    line reads /home/luis/abi/abiword-1.0.3/wv/libwv.a -ljpeg -lpng -lz, I
    guess is the libwv library ??.. any clues, recomendations...

    Also I heard that Mandrake 9.1 has Abiword, and I am downloading those 3
    cds because I think Abiword is really worth the upgrading pain...
    thanx in advanced.
