Precise: Abiword 2.9.4

I have compiled Abiword word processor version 2.9.4 in Precise Puppy, against the GTK2 library.

PETs (3.6M, 33.1M, 2K, 2.1M):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-precise/abiword-2.9.4-precise.pet
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-precise/abiword_DEV-2.9.4-precise.pet
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-precise/abiword_DOC-2.9.4-precise.pet
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-precise/abiword_NLS-2.9.4-precise.pet

This is how I compiled it:
# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --enable-print --enable-spell --enable-static --with-gtk2 --enable-plugins="freetranslation gdict mswrite opendocument openwriter openxml pdf"



It might not work in Precise 5.5.92, as I installed 'libcairo-gobject2' and 'libcairo-script-interpreter2' from the 'ubuntu-main' repo.

I am wondering if this Abiword will also work in Raring pup?
The last upload of Raring pup has the official Ubuntu Abiword DEB, which uses GTK3 -- also it crashed when I opened the Preferences window -- consistently.
In Raring pup would also need to install 'libcairo-gobject2' and 'libcairo-script-interpreter2'.

abiword libaspell
Precise 5.7.1
abiword 2.9.4

I started abiword from terminal to see if an error occured when opening GDict, no, but as I started to type I got this error:

" .......1.........2.........3.........4.........5.........6....
abiword

** (abiword:21467): WARNING **: Error loading plugin: libaspell.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

" .......1.........2.........3.........4.........5.........6....
I did a find and yes... no libaspell

find / -iname '*libaspell*'
