FWIW, I just downloaded the latest libaspell and libpspell (the new
libaspell requires a newer libpspell than is installed on RH 7.1).
They compiled and installed OK (in /usr/local). But I couldn't figure
out how to get balsa to recognise them in that location. Finally,
after wasting a couple of hours trying to do this "right", I just soft-
linked the lib[ap]spell installation to /usr, and balsa would finally
So now I'm able to load the aspell module, and everything seems to work
OK, until I actually try to use it to spell check something. If I
attempt to replace a misspelled word, balsa immediately crashes. I'm
gonna give up on this for a while...
Cheers! (also sorry for any misspellings)
