Abiword fails to build


I've never had this problem before in Slackware 14, but ever since installing 14.1 I've found that I can't install Abiword. Slackbuilds.org tells me that it just need to install wv, which I did. When I execute the abiword.SlackBuild file it builds(for quite awhile) and then I get this error:
Code:
libtool: link: warning: `/usr/lib64/libffi.la' seems to be moved
libtool: link: warning: `/usr/lib64/libffi.la' seems to be moved
/usr/bin/grep: /usr/lib/liblzma.la: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib/liblzma.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/usr/lib/liblzma.la' is not a valid libtool archive
make[3]: *** [libabiword-3.0.la] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/abiword-3.0.0/src'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/abiword-3.0.0/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/abiword-3.0.0'
make: *** [all] Error 2
It looks like I'm missing dependencies, or something.... idk. The only thing I can find is that when I run 'which wv' it appears to not be installed on the system. I am positive I installed it though. I even did it a second time just to be sure I didn't just execute the slackbuild and then forget to install it. Yet it keeps saying that there is no wv installed on the system.
Code:
which: no wv in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib64/qt/bin:/usr/share/texmf/bin

I guess your Slackware is 64-bit with multilib. In this case you should look at this

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Unless I missed something, I guess I'll just have to deal with no Abiword. I remember it used to install just fine in Slackware 14.0. I added this line:
Code:
LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX}" \
As per the link you gave me. Did absolutely nothing. Oh well I guess.

I am new to Slackware (running Slackware64-14.1-Xfce) but I seem to have had a problem like this trying to load abiword. (I had hoped to do an abiword/gnumeric combination on my Xfce desktop). In my case abiword is looking for libwv-1.2.so.4. I could not find it in the slackware repos. A search did locate it as a .rpm package, so I assume more experienced slackers than I am can work with it. Instead I went to Robbie Workman's site and downloaded libreoffice 4.1.3.2 from there and installed it using installpkg. I also installed the libreoffice help-pack. It all went on very quickly and it works quite well. LibreOffice is more than I need, frankly, but it solved my problem.
