 Buids under 2.0, I can't see why it would be different in 2.1:*vim*

 All python packages from 1.5 to 2.4 have built under 2.0, and are available
 from the ftp server.

 Yes, this one seems to not build

 mplayer-share is not on the ftp server, but mplayer may be RESTRICTED

 abiword-2.4.1.tgz on ftp server.
 There are very very few changes between between 2.0 and 2.1 which should
 affect packages build. Most changes are bug fixes, a few features added.
 But *no* API or ABI changes (this is what a minor release mean).
 So, especially for your PLIST, missing includes or libraries, I should
 have got these errors in the 2.0 bulk build. This is why I strongly suspect
 something in your environnement, or system setup.

 Did you try without CFLAGS ?
