Description of problem:
Other programs that use aspell, such as gtkspell, can't detect it. They complain
of a lack of aspell.h, pspell.h, and libpspell.so.4. This is fixable by
installing from source, but it is very annoying and shouldn't be a problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try installing gtkspell (gtkspell.sf.net) either from source or by rpm

Actual Results:  Complained of missing *.so and *.h files

Expected Results:  Installed successfully

Additionally, something that thoroughly confuses me is Severn comes with Gaim
0.64, which requires gtkspell, but and rpm -q doesn't show it as installed, and
when you try to upgrade Gaim to 0.66 it says that it is not installed.

upgrades aren't supported from rawhide. the next non-beta release will allow
upgrading from a prev (supported) red hat version to the current
