removing them and rebuilding :-)

$ ls /usr/include/hunspell/
affentry.hxx   csutil.hxx       htmlparser.hxx  latexparser.hxx
affixmgr.hxx   dictmgr.hxx      htypes.hxx      manparser.hxx
atypes.hxx     firstparser.hxx  hunspell.hxx    suggestmgr.hxx
baseaffix.hxx  hashmgr.hxx      langnum.hxx     textparser.hxx
