Hello, Yves!

The problem is in the file generated by AbiWord or in pdflatex. Please
have a look at the attached hello.txt. It has a line saying:
%% package does not support Português (Brasil)
\usepackage[português]{babel}

Commenting \usepackage... solves the problem, but also UTF-8 characters
are not displayed properly. So it means my "babel package" doesn't
support pt_BR, or it is some package I need to install, or it is a bug
in texlive-latex-base or abiword.

teresaejunior at localhost:~\$ dpkg -l | grep babel
teresaejunior at localhost:~\$

I still have no idea of what to install if needed, tried installing
texlive-lang-portuguese without success. Maybe some package Debian
should recommend ( I usually don't install recommends anyway ;)

Best regards!
