That commit is from the person I've been working with from Abiword.

I've picked up a bigger problem in my experiments.  Enchant loads 
modules for each spell checker provider, these seem to be hard coded to 
/Users/dev/gtk/inst/lib/enchant - so I need to check where it gets those 
and how we can make them relative.

I guess because it doesn't go through the actual dynamic module loading 
we can't use any of the rewrite magic that is there when we load shared 
libraries.  Or am I wrong?
