Another day, another step closer, but another error :/

I tried the -a but I got an error on "enchant".  I was able to build enchant
and get past that, but now it wants "fribidi", but ./sugar-jhbuild
fribidi doesn't work (nor does libfribidi).  apt-get tells me that the
system's copy of libfribidi is up to date (but that shouldn't matter).

So my current sticking point is that `sugar-jhbuild buildone -a libabiword`

checking for FRIBIDI... 
fribidi sources can be downloaded from SourceForge


Note: Don't use the fribidi source which is sometimes
      included with AbiWord since that version is for
      Windows only.
configure: error: * * * fribidi >= 0.10.4 is required * * *

Thanks for the continued help,


Q: Because it reverses the logical flow of conversation.
A: Why is putting a reply at the top of the message frowned upon?
