It sort of works with 1.4.2 which I built with
-DWITH_ASPELL=0 -DWANT_HUNSPELL=1 -DWANT_GUI_LANG="en_GB"
Shift+F7 activates the spell checker on a selected text box.
So, you need hunspell + hunspell-devel
My current problems is that selecting the spell checker gives me en_ZM
(I think) and changing it causes a crash (Fedora 17)
Also the first word is not selected for correction.
But it might work in french.
I have to go back to, I think my SUSE installation where I had it
