poke it after I commit the big changes first and I will find out more if
the build fail or whatever.

am able to add *.jpg and *.png images in AbiWord. Althought, I didn't test
with old AbiWord for insert images.
If no, well what's name of this plugins? Care to point me the directory?
Later, if you still have this problem with Insert feature then you can
report problem again to gnome at FreeBSD.org and we will take the look at

If it's different from the Insert feature above, then no I will not get
plugins load by default. It's up to the users if they want the plugins
then install AbiWord-plugins (future new port) and load it.
If it's Insert feature then yes, it is enable by default with this big
