    RedHat has fontconfig for their next release... this just means
    that I'm probably installing the second limbo beta on my home computer

    Well, before upgrading my home computer, I could try to rebuild
    fontconfig's rpms for RedHat 7.x on my home computer, and, if the spec
    is not merged to kp's fontconfig package already, I probably will adapt it and
    send him it.

    I will use my laptop, for the time being, to try to adapt the abiword's
    spec for the new status.
