Ok. I still would like to get things going with the "current hacks", just to be able to start testing with our Sámi morphologies.

Things are working fine with the default malaga backend now, and I think I have done all correctly for the HFST backend. Still - no success:

a83-245-189-120:voikko sjur$ voikkospell -d hfst
E: Initialization of Voikko failed: Requested language is not supported

Any ideas?
