Thanks.  Did I miss this requirement somewhere or is this part of the
learning process of trying to build it on !Fedora?

wv built, but I have trouble with the others:

./sugar-jhbuild buildone abiword
jhbuild.errors.FatalError: A module called ''abiword'' could not be found.

./sugar-jhbuild buildone pyabiword
[snip lots of autoconf stuf]
checking for ABIWORD... configure: error: Package requirements ("abiword-2.5") were not met:

No package 'abiword-2.5' found

That error concerns me a bit; I used ubuntu's package manager to get their
latest version of abiword, but that's 2.4.something.  Do I need to get that
installed on the system from soruce, or should the sugar build be pulling the
source for itself?

As for
./sugar-jhbuild buildone abiword-olpc

That says "*** success ***", but of course I still have the same problem.

Thanks, I'll plan to check back.  I guess I'm confused though, where should
this makefile be?  Are we talking about pyabiword?

% find source | grep -i make | grep -i abi
