Spell check feature does not work in Haiku Mail app

Reported by: koki Owned by: axeld

When you attempt to use the spell check feature in the Haiku Email app, you get the following message:

"The spell check feature requires the optional "words" file on your BeOS CD."

To reproduce:

  • Create a new email message using Haiku's Email app
  • Type some text
  • Select "Check Spelling" from "Edit" menu.

Expected behaviour:

The spell check should just work, or otherwise removed from the Email app.

The spell check feature does not work because the words file does not exist. The mail app expects the words file to be located at /boot/optional/goodies/words. The words file is in the haiku source at /haiku/src/apps/mail/words but it does not get built into haiku. Placing the words file in the correct directory in haiku makes the spell check feature work like a charm.
