I feel that the run-time option is unnecessary if a dictionary with a
reduced vocabulary can be selected at installation if desired, and if it
can be rebuilt later.
(This package can also regenerate dictionaries with the Emacs command.)

Based on the totality of the discussion so far, would the following
policy be the best?

1. make the build-time option selectable to install a dictionary with a
   reduced vocabulary
2. install dictionaries without reduced vocabulary by default
3. make it possible to regenerate dictionaries from make or Emacs
