[libvoikko] Problems with dictionary generating scripts

I'm facing difficulties with the vvfst dictionary generating scripts, esp. generate_lex.py:

1: The script appears to require that the </word> end tags are given in the XML input of the dictionary at the very start of the line. If not,
then the script fails to terminate. Of course there's a simple work-around, but it is against the spirit of XML to need to be concerned with
such low-level formatting details.

2: What is wrong with the following input? 
- - - CLIP - - -
$ cat vocabulary/joukahainen.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE wordlist SYSTEM "wordlist.dtd">
<wordlist xml:lang="fi">
<word id="w15">
$ make vvfst-install
python3 vvfst/generate_lex.py  --destdir=vvfst
Traceback (most recent call last):

('bänet' is a word of inflection type 8 (nalle, nallen, nallea, ...) according to the Finnish word-list kotus-sanalista_v1.xml by the Institute for the Languages of Finland.)
