With abiword (editors/abiword/Makefile,v 1.44) all words are
mispelled.  All words are underlined red. And when I use "Check
Spelling" it shows all my words are mispelled and doesn't even show
any possible replacements (other than "?").

In and in the spelling Preferences, it has a choice "Suggest from
main dictionary only" that is grayed out (and unselectable).

And it has a drop down menus for "Custom Dictionary" that say "custom.dic"
and "Dictionary..." that are also grayed out and unavailable. (So I am not
allowed to try another dictionary.)

I have ispell-base-3.1.20nb1.
International Ispell Version 3.1.20 10/10/95
And ispell works (using American English).
Use abiword and spell a multicharacter, all lowercase word (with no digits)
correctly. And see it underlined in red. Try to use the spelling preferences.
Try to run a spell check and see if you have any choices other than "?"
Don't know. I do see there are two dictionaries in the build directory
for both Endian types. Maybe wrong one is used.
So it is built or expecting the wrong hash.

Or maybe abiword is looking in Abisuite/dictionary which doesn't exist
instead of using shared system ispell files. Well maybe not,
/usr/pkg/share/AbiSuite/dictionary/american.hash links to the existing

I do see that it is a different size than the *Endian32.american.hash files.
