Fantastic! Thks. I pkg_deleted abiword 2.0.5 and built and
installed abiword1.  the printing is FINE:)!

And the spell checker workd as well.
So thanks. I get to keep NetBSD on the desktop.

Actually one other question, when you want to build a
snapshot version of something in pkgsrc,

how do you do that?
do you have to alter something in the pkgsrc tree?
( ie i don't know how to build 2.1.8 ).
