Thanks! The real bug here is that voikkovfstc should not have been enabled at 
all by default. It makes no sense since support for compiled VFST spellers and 
analyzers is experimental and disabled.

I will make sure that the compiler will validate its input properly once all 
the pieces in this toolchain have settled to some fixed input/output formats. 
Meanwhile there are two possible fixes:

1) Build libvoikko with --disable-buildtools. This will remove voikkovfstc but 
unfortunately its manual page will still be installed.

2) Apply this patch and regenerate the configure scripts:


This will remove voikkovfstc and its manual page, no configure switches need 
to be added. This is going to be the default in libvoikko 3.7 unless we manage 
to finish the work on VFST by then (I think that's unlikely).
