  Building british ispell package with "make british" works fine, but
  subsequent "make install" produces slightly incorrect registration,
  as the hashes are now called lib/british* not lib/american*.  Thus,
  pkg_add and pkg_delete complain, and the british hashes are not
  removed when the pkg_delete is run.

  Note that ispell does not build correctly under -current due to a
  bug in the new sort; I build it using the 1-5-RELEASE version of

  cd /usr/pkgsrc/textproc/ispell
  make british
  make install


  The PLIST can be fixed for a british-only install easily enough
  (patch below), but of course that breaks it for americans, instead.
  It would be better to move to dynamic PLIST, I suppose.
