Hmm ... I did not install Office on my machine, just copied the following 
files from my Windows NT machine into a separate directory:

- - winword.exe
- - mso97.dll
- - wwintl32.dll

To be honest: I even have not installed Windows at all on this machine 
although I have a license for it.

The files stated above are enough to resolve the linker dependencies.

Additionally I added a font alias:

"Alias0" = "Tahoma,-adobe-helvetica-"

This is because I did not get xfstt work together with my Windows Exceed X 
Server (to use the original tahoma.ttf files). This suppresses the error 
message saying that it could not find Tahoma font.
