Description of problem: The KThesaurus program complains that 'wn' is not

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

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed RH beta 3. Picked a mix of packages but didn't override
the dependencies and extra packages the installer wanted: said 'yes,
get them all' to them.
2. Running Gnome, selected Thesaurus from the KDE menu.
3. Asked it about eleemosynary (!). Couldn't find it (fair enough)
on first tab. On second tab, get error message.
Actual Results:  Error: Failed to execute WordNet program 'wn'. WordNet has to
be installed on your computer if you want to use it, and 'wn' has to be in your
PATH. You can get WordNet at http://www.cogsci.princeton.edu/~wn/. Note that
WordNet only supports the English language.

Expected Results:  Not sure. Not seen this program before.

If RH ships this program, then I presume koffice should have a 
dependency on it. 

If it doesn't, then, well. I suppose this error message is a fairly
good one, actually; and this is NOTABUG. (Sorry if that's the case.)

Since we've reverted to KOffice 1.1.1 (which doesn't have KThesaurus) for now, 
this is a non-issue for Hampton. 
Reassigning to the distribution component as a request to add wordnet for 
Milan (when we'll have a newer KOffice).

Closing bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack of
