Thanks for the info caitlyn.
By the way, does everything work correctly if you use the --no-dep option of slapt-get?
At least for the X11 and Freetype dependencies? If yes, then it will just be a matter of fixing abiword's slack-required.
I'm very sorry for not taking care of this sooner, but time is rather limited for me right now.
Tomorrow is Saturday, so I can spare some time to getting this fixed.
