updating Xchat and friends



The current version of Xchat is 2.6.0-6.  Version 2.6.6  was released on
17July. A release of 2.6.7 for Linux is imminent.

The later versions support spell checking, which is a good thing. There
are configuration options that provide choices for spell checking
mechanisms.  By default, configure will elect to link in libsexy if
found. libsexy will use enchant by default.


I built 2.6.6 using the src rpm from 2.6.0-6.  I used a simplistic
approach:
* downloaded the 2.6.6 tar ball from xchat.org
* edited the 2.6.0 spec file
- changed the version numbers
- stripped out all of the patches [:-)]

Builds and runs fine.

There is also a newer version of enchant available:

        enchant: 1.2.6
