You might want to recompile with Pspell support built in
(pspell.sourceforge.net). Pspell is much better supported, at least on
Linux. In our CVS sources, you can now do cool things like this:
<en-US>color</en-US> <en-GB>colour</en-GB> inside of the same document or
line, so that if you need to write multi-lingual documents, it'll "just
work" for you for whatever language(s) you need to use.
