enchant stole the languages in gedit-plugins

A note on strange gedit behaviour: after the last update of portsĀ  – yes, there is always something wrong with ports after an update, no matter what it looks like – my gedit wasn’t able to do spell checking, though I was sure I had hunspell and aspell for at least English and German installed system-wide.

Gedit simply displayed no languages in the appropriate menu.

It would re-compile and re-install even from ports, just fine, but no re-compilation of plugins, python bindings or dictionaries helped until I re-installed enchant from ports! There, it might help someone figure out where have all the languages gone:

pkg info gedit\* \*enchant \*aspell
gedit-3.14.2
gedit-plugins-3.14.1
enchant-1.6.0_4
py27-enchant-1.6.5_6
aspell-0.60.6.1_5
de-aspell-20030222.1_1
en-aspell-7.1.0_1
it-aspell-2.2.20050523.0_1,2
