IIRC, Ispell supports only single-byte encodings.  As such, the
encoding it expects is the same encoding used for the dictionary from
which the *.hash file was produced.  If the dictionary was encoded in
Latin-1, that is what Ispell will expect for that dictionary.

To have a Latin-9 dictionary, one needs to recode it, and then produce
a .hash file and add an entry to ispell-dictionary-base-alist for the
new dictionary, stating the correct encoding.
