    I'm sorry if I sound overly critical, but this is all insane. libgsf
    shouldn't have any awareness of AbiWord - unless you feel like adding
    "Makefile.abi" in the top directory, as with wv, but that's something we
    could add to libgsf after we make it a peer directory - just as we'll need
    to add the generated auto* build system (stuff you certainly don't want
    in raw GNOME CVS, unless you enjoy death threats).

    As I mentioned the other day, I have a patch against ABI-GTK2-PORT/abi to
    build against peer libgsf, so if anyone feels like experimenting...
