Spell checking not working in alpine, and the solution I found

Hi all,

Firstly, for those of you who got this twice, I apologize for the cross 

As the subject say, I found that spell checking didn't work for me when 
using alpine. There is no En-ZA dictionary for /usr/bin/hunspell that I 
know of, and that is the default.

I did a bit of googling, and some testing, and found that "aspell -c" does 
the job rather adequately.

Just thought I'd share what I found in case someone else ever search threw 
the archives for this info.

Warm regards,

Brandt Steenkamp
