*sigh*  frankly i find this quite un-openbsd-ish...

yes, probably better for the package makers, but what
about the people who build stuff from the ports tree?

why do i have to download almost 2 more MBs and wait
an hour while the other dictionaries are generated on
my old p133?  this is not something i have seen before
around openbsd.

if someone else tried to bring this up as an issue maybe
i would be inclined to believe, but naddy?  you make such
wonders in the ports tree, that  seperating the dictionaries
from ispell is nothing for you but a matter of 5 minutes.

ok.  been here for a while, i know the rules.
i'll send you a patch shortly (when the other dicts are
generated and i finally get to the slovak...)
