If it was from community version of abiword, I tried the patch and it works fine. Thank you!

Okay, I've added an extra change to the patch to make the configure script look for "enchant-2" now. I'm.. not sure when that library name was changed, it's possible that spell-checking has been broken for a looong time (I mostly use Google Docs nowadays). I've checked the fix works with my setup (using hunspell-en_GB), and I've pushed the update. Could you test the update on your setup, bidulock?

Sigh. These comments always come when I'm AFK in a field in Derbyshire. :P

I'll try to remember to update this package when I get home. Thanks for letting me know!

if you want support for open/libreoffice (.odt) and newer word (.docx) and probably many other formats, edit the PKGBUILD:
remove both lines reading "--disable-*-plugins \"
no additional dependencies afaics.

Thanks for feedback. I applied the changes.

The compilation on my system failed with an error message about a missing library in goffice-bits2 ( I've fixed it by adding the following command
make -C goffice-bits2
just before the 'make' command. After this, it is possible to remove the !makeflags option.
