Bug#646555: enchant: Spellcheck missing dependency
I have planned to do some work on enchant.
But upstream is not really nice.
- First plugin system is not nice they are some circular dep
- Secondly for a general purpose lib they use gtk and thus increase
reverse dep. I will prefer pure C for the main part of enchant. And
upstream refuse my patch
