Description: As reported on the forum (http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=47989) the patch to build Sylpheed 2.4.8 against Enchant needs to be rewritten. The new release of Enchant (1.4.1) has modified APIs.

I did a trace with gdb, and it seems the function enchant_broker_list_dicts() is the problem.

Steps to reproduce:
- open Sylpheed
- try to compose a new mail
This task depends upon

Not a bug in sylpheed, it's a bug in enchant.

Due to the update of enchant, also xchat segfaults for me (the strace of xchat shows errors related to enchant and downgrading enchant fixes the issue).
