Thanks you Reuben Thomas, I hope this gets resolved in the best way possible, 

Unfortunately Arch maintainers have declined looking at this with the following Catch 22 comment:

>> FS#68499 - [enchant] Warnings about optional dependencies.>> Reason for closing: Not a bug
>> Additional comments about closing: Warnings are not errors. If emacs Flyspell doesn't work upon seeing enchant *warnings*, Flyspell should be fixed

As for me, I think I will refrain from reporting more bugs for now.
Be safe.

Thanks, but I'm not interested in working around installation problems

additional requests we will have to honor.

The reporter and I seem to have swapped positions on this!

I believe that the ispell.el code (which I wrote) is buggy: it should not be incorporating warnings into its output.

Also, the patch I offered is a simplification of the original code. So, I don't think we are losing here.

Eli, I quite agree with your sentiment, and I would certainly not advocate installing a workaround in Emacs unless there were compelling reasons. However, I do not see this as a workaround, and as it is also a simplification, I don't see a problem.
