I have installed HFST in a non-standard location (--prefix=$HOME), but got the linking etc to work during compilation. I had expected that to be enough - but is it?

This was it. As soon as I installed both HFST, hfst-ospell and LibVoikko in the default location (ie no --prefix), everything worked fine (after Tommi fixed a small bug in hfst r1621). I have a working sme voikko+hfst speller :D

I also had to run ./autogen.sh again to fix the build environment.

Basic take-home: using non-default prefixes is too complicated for me, at least when it concerns a chain of dependent pieces of software :D
