Yes, it worked as intended :)

I created a pull request. The new code seems to work correctly on my system. It only add the additional search path if no prefix is specified - I believe that that is the cleanest approach. If a prefix is given, and one still wants the additional search path, one can use --with-dictionary-path to override.

Please test, and see if it works ok.

Sorry, I just realised I forgot to update the documentation :(
