I'm sorry to say this, but I'm still getting the error:

$ cd /tmp/apps/antiword
$ wget
$ tar xjf antiword-0.34-2.tar.bz2
$ ln -s /tmp/apps/antiword/usr/share/antiword ~/.antiword
$ usr/bin/antiword.exe -m cp1251.txt
Syntax error in: '0x98          #UNDEFINED'

I've tried building from source in order to debug this, but the patch did
not apply cleanly; due to the DOS line endings in most of it.  That may be
the reason why the binary package still contains the older versions of the
codepage translation files.
