Enchant is a generic spell checking library which uses existing
spell checker engines such as ispell, aspell and myspell as its backends.
Enchant steps in to provide uniformity and conformity on top of these
libraries, and implement certain features that may be lacking in any
individual provider library.
This package contains standalone runtime binary programs.

* debian/control:
- Prefix libenchant1c2a depends with a non-virtual package.

it exposes to other programs doesn't require glib. This
makes life easier for packages depending on enchant
(Closes: #651819).
