Bringing to devel some things recently shown in aspell-user to give them the
correct audience,

This thread started as

More info available from

A brief summary follows, starting from

When aspell is compiled with diferent values for 'data-dir' and 'lib-dir',
filters are not found and errors happen like

WARNING: Unable to enter Nroff mode: Unknown mode: "nroff".

Seems that aspell installs ".amf" files under 'lib-dir' and "*"
under 'data-dir', making aspell fail when looks for
under 'dict-dir' if both are different ('lib-dir=/usr/lib/aspell' and
'data-dir=/usr/share/aspell' here).

I have been playing with this when trying to make Debian use different
values for both and finally used attached patch, which, once propagated to
the autotools buildchain, tries to install all filter related things under
'lib-dir'. This seems to make aspell work again in such cases.

There are surely other ways to handle this, but here goes info about mine.
