I see, sorry for the misunderstanding. Honestly, I'm not sure how to do it. My 
best answer is: get the repository, make your change, build it and use

That's weird: enchant should be replaced everywhere and build with the new 
source, it shouldn't even look for a hash. The file is available at the ci 
server though, so maybe check your substitute servers? You can download it 
directly at

I'll update to 2.2.7 when I have access to my gpg key, so the problem should be 
fixed after that. The 2.2.5 release was made twice by accident, which overwrote 
the old tarball. The new 2.2.5 tarball actually is the 2.2.6 release. See fos details.
