OK, seems fine.

Added this as 3) a) i) and implemented it. Hopefully the implementation is 
correct, I could not test it.

I think it would be best to implement this as part of 5) by making --with-
dictionary-path default to /usr/lib/voikko:/Library/Spelling/voikko on OS X 
and /usr/lib/voikko on other operating systems (this would make it possible to 
override the default).

This would only require changes to configure.ac. Something like

  if test x$build_os == xsomething; then

between lines 52 and 57. Can you help me here? I do not know what $build_os is 
on OS X and if I try to write this without testing I will most likely just 
break things.
