      Description

      On bengal:

      > Linux bengal 2.6.32-220.4.1.el6.x86_64 WT-1 SMP Tue Jan 24 02:13:44 GMT 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      I'm seeing this when I run the dist scripts:

      Error: No word lists can be found for the language "en".
      comm: file 2 is not in sorted order
      Error: No word lists can be found for the language "en".
      comm: file 2 is not in sorted order

      Turns out that RedHat/CentOS no longer supports aspell, they have switched to hunspell, and no longer include dictionaries in the standard rpm download: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=590700.

      First, I don't think hunspell supports "mode=ccpp", which is what we're using aspell for – this is troubling, I would hate to give up that functionality (although it wouldn't be that hard to just write it ourselves, all we need is a tiny program that parses comments from C code).

      Second, I don't understand why this suddenly turned up, it was working fine the last time I noticed.

      I uninstalled aspell on bengal for now just to make the message go away.

      I'm making this a "test" issue: I don't have a reason to do anything much to fix it, but it took me awhile to figure out and I don't want to lose that information, either.
