Description Moritz Barsnick 2008-06-19 15:19:04 UTC
Description of problem:
mutt is explicitely configured for aspell (instead of ispell) in the SPEC file, 
but it doesn't even have support for either built in.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mutt -v
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
- It looks like mutt requires the presence of an ispell binary in order to 
build support for it. Stupid, huh? So, first line fix would be:
BuildRequires: aspell
(if it is really desired, but why not?).

- Perhaps ./configure should be patched to also detect the aspell binary. The 
ispell binary it detects here (with the above fix) is the comaptibility script.

- I checked this with the F8 SRPM, but it should be valid for all current 
builds, i.e. F8, F9, rawhide^Wdevelopment.

Comment 1 Miroslav Lichvar 2008-06-19 15:45:35 UTC
That's just a cosmetic issue. -ISPELL in the output means there is no hardcoded
path in mutt, but the support is still compiled in.

In /etc/Muttrc is the following line to use the aspell's email mode.

set ispell="/usr/bin/aspell --mode=email check"

mutt-1.5.18-3.fc10 buildrequires aspell.
