The VirtualHost argument much match the NameVirtualHost argument.  You  
can have multiple NameVirtualHost directives if you want to support  
multiple ports and Also, dump the RewriteCond inside the VirtualHost.   
Also, rewrite directives aren't inherited by virtual hosts, so you  
need to turn on the rewrite engine explicitly in each.

Try something like so:

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName www.example.tld
DocumentRoot /home/user/example

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName www.abc.tld
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/(.*) \
abcplonesite/VirtualHostRoot/$1 [L,P]

Caveat, I don't usually use the wildcard semantics so I might be  
missing something.  You can also try the above with all the "*:80"  
changed to "<ip address>:80".

I'm guessing you missed the RewriteEngine issue in your experiments.
