Well, I wanted to have spellchecks in Gaim so I got the PKGBUILD from ABS, installed gtkspell using pacman and went off to build the new package. GtkSpell was found by the configure script and the compilation went fine, however when I installed the package nothing was changed and I still did not have gtkspell support. I also tried to add gtkspell to the list of deps and the result was the same.
Is that a bug?

If it is a bug, it's a bug in gaim's build system. You have to debug it now. Why isn't gtkspell being added? You have to figure it out.
