Description Armin K. 2017-09-13 15:19:36 PDT
Enchant-2.1.1 was recently released and it removed some deprecated APIs which WebKitGtk is still using. Trying to build WebKitGtk-2.18.0 against Enchant-2.1.1 results in following error:

/home/armin/src/pacman/pkgbuild/webkitgtk/src/webkitgtk-2.18.0/Source/WebCore/platform/text/enchant/TextCheckerEnchant.cpp:132:9: error: use of undeclared identifier 'enchant_dict_free_suggestions'
        enchant_dict_free_suggestions(dictionary, suggestions);

Refer to commit [1] for details.

Easy bug fix (taken from [1]):

sed -i "s#enchant_dict_free_suggestions#enchant_dict_free_string_list#g" Source/WebCore/platform/text/enchant/TextCheckerEnchant.cpp

Looks like that API has been around since at least 2005, so it should be no problem to switch.

Really glad that enchant is maintained again.
