It depends on if you kept it. If you do ./autogen and then you do ./configure a file config.log is created. Also, when you do ./configure, you'll see something like: Special build flags: build=development warnings assertions stdlib-debug concept-checks use-enchant use-hunspell That shows that I'm compiling (by default, I didn't change anything) with support for enchant and hunspell. > I did load first a lyx file, of course.

You could try building without installing (just don't do the 'make install' step). That will allow you to test your build before installing it. You could see then if it has hunspell support. > Could Texlive (I am using 2013) be involved?? No. Scott
