Back in October, Greg Holmes posted a python wrapper script for htsearch,
which used ispell to suggest alternative spellings. The thread that
ensued is at http://www.htdig.org/mail/2000/10/index.html#295
The ispell package is GNU software, so it should port to IRIX easily
enough, I'd think, and the dictionaries are very customisable.
