Many of the patches were obsoleted by the improvements to the build system in 2.6, so they didn't apply any more:
01_aaa_fix_plugins_m4 (in the 2.4.6 package but not in 00list!)

The language patches are obsolete due to string updates and countless translation updates:
(If a fix here is needed it should be brought upstream.  It looks like 13 does some changes with adding a "language" called base, but as I don't see translation packages for AbiWord or other external force which would require this change, I'm not sure what use it is, as we automatically do a fallback process to the most reasonable language given the user's regional settings.  I removed it in favor of using what works upstream.)

Other removed patches:
03_workaround_for_ots - Obsoleted by upstream - pretty sure a similar patch was applied.
10_browser_handling - A better, simpler fix is upstream
11_history_fullpath - A better, simpler fix is upstream
18_new_poppler and poppler06-api - both obsoleted by upstream  - I can't even see where they used to apply in those source files, which I think were re-written

I left the two Ubuntu patches that change behavior: 04_autosave_default
and 14_comma_subscript.  I also needed to add one patch to adjust the
build system of the abiword-extras source directory, formerly known as
abidistfiles.  In addition, following the lead of my fellow AbiWord
packagers in other distributions, I have added a patch to the upstream
.desktop file adding in (most) of the mimetypes supported by the
package.  When possible and reasonable, I eliminated duplication in the
packaging in favor of upstream code that does the same thing (for
instance, the inclusion of a desktop file in the orig tarball) to reduce
the future maintenance load and avoid code and effort duplication.
(This explains the changes in the /debian/misc folder, too.)

Please update to version 2.6
