Weird. Not there now anyway. It goes straight from A-GPS to Abuse.

Unfortunately if you go to that page and click on the "Click to Install" 
button, you get the error message (on the N800) "Unable to install 
(null). In compatible application package".

As this claims to be a "package install" I'm not clear what's wrong with 
it, but it's very obviously broken.

Does anyone know why Abiword's own site has no mention of the Nokia port?

I'd guess because it's broken.

If anyone has a working .deb I'd be grateful to know.
