Thanks for the info. I was missing a spell checker badly since i switched to 
Konqueror & Kmail :).
I just downloaded and installed these pspell and Aspell,
everything works fine. And, to my surprise, I did not need to insert these 
#include(s) you mentioned. Both pspell and Aspell were configured with 
--prefix=/usr/local. Perhaps the author really tested his config just for 
/usr/local, and you have something different ?
Just FYI.

Why Aspell, not aspell ? Well, aspell thinks so ...
