Yeah, I agree. I think we should package convert_dict from the Chromium
sources as a new package to makedepend on.

Assuming that WebEngine will not be the only consumer of .bdic
dictionaries, how about putting them in /usr/share/bdic, and then either
patching sources to use that dir or linking whatever engine-specific
dictionaries there?

We could also put them with the other dictionaries into
/usr/share/hunspell, assuming that won't cause problems.
