Thanks for the info.

The KControls README and issues shows there are several users, but of
course it is unlikely they would want their software in Debian.


   ... the package is already heavily used by me and others!


BTW: Debian's information about "vendoring" or embedded copies is here:

Since the hunspell library headers can change over time, adding support
for new functions, constants etc, that sounds like something that
should be generated at build time rather than copied into the source,
can Lazarus convert the installed headers into .pas at build time? Or
does the generated .pas file need editing in order to work properly?
Generating the bindings at build time that would enable you to more
easily support other spelling libraries like nuspell too.
