Not completely at least.

Linking the file $(LIBVOIKKO_PATH)/lib/libvoikko.a caused a linking error:

ld: warning: in build/voikko.map, file was built for unsupported file format which is not the architecture being linked (i386)
Undefined symbols:
  "hfst_ol::ZHfstOspeller::read_legacy(std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> > const&)", referenced from:
      libvoikko::spellchecker::suggestion::HfstSuggestion::HfstSuggestion(std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> > const&, libvoikko::voikko_options_t*)in libvoikko.a(HfstSuggestion.o)


There should be no architecture problem for that file:

$ file /usr/local/lib/libvoikko.a
/usr/local/lib/libvoikko.a: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures
/usr/local/lib/libvoikko.a (for architecture i386):	current ar archive random library
/usr/local/lib/libvoikko.a (for architecture x86_64):	current ar archive random library

Switching to $(LIBVOIKKO_PATH)/lib/libvoikko.1.dylib removed the linking errors, and produced a somewhat larger voikko.dylib file in the voikko.oxt. But the resulting oxt gives the same error as earlier.

I will when I get it to work.
