Sigh, I thought I had fixed that. I'll have a fixed source package up
asap, and will let you know when it is done.

Abiword's build process is extremely nasty. It took a lot of work to
build here, and I'm not too surprised that you are having problems. Is

This should not be the case. We don't use oaf as part of Helix GNOME,
and our gnumeric and gnome-iconedit binaries are not linked against
You may want to remove liboaf-dev before building gnumeric and
gnome-iconedit. It is possible that they are enabling oaf support when
they find that package installed.

complains about the final deb. I haven't figured out how to fix it.
