Sounds like there is some library / module confusion here. Is enchant
meant to be linked against (which the placement in libdir seems to
indicate), or is it meant to be dlopened (which including the .so in the
main package seems to imply).

If midori is dlopening the enchant library for false fear of
dependencies, then this clearly is a midori issue. If it wants to play
such games, it needs to look for *.so.<n>
