This is because of the dash before 'en'.
I would recommend to use a *much* simpler script for the dictionary,
Then create a list of the installed files and tar it up.
Since there is just aspell called to compile the dictonaries, this even
could be done in a postinstall script;) Really! The ./configure script
is just a shell script which looks where aspell is installed and creates
the Makefile from a template, the compilation of the dictonaries last
very long, though.
