This is my bad. I patched away the lookup path in TWUtils.cpp
accidentally. I meant to patch only the spelling path. 

Sorry for the noise.

I was wondering if I should try to get a port in tree @ OpenBSD. 

I tried a while back, but they (quite rightly) want to check hunspell

Obviously I would not have bothered if enchant were to be substituted

Thanks for your help / info Jonathan.
