since the binaries on http://code.google.com/p/texworks/ are quite  
old, I tried to build TeXWorks myself for OSX. Unfortunately I still  
struggle with the setup. I think there is still something wrong with  
the paths for hunspell in the TeXworks.pro file. Building goes fine  
for the most time but fails in the end with the following messages.

   "_Hunspell_get_dic_encoding", referenced from:
       TeXDocument::setLanguage(QString const&)  in TeXDocument.o
   "_Hunspell_add", referenced from:
       CompletingEdit::ignoreWord()       in CompletingEdit.o
   "_Hunspell_create", referenced from:
       TWUtils::getDictionary(QString const&) in TWUtils.o
   "_Hunspell_spell", referenced from:
       CompletingEdit::contextMenuEvent(QContextMenuEvent*)        in  
       TeXHighlighter::spellCheckRange(QString const&, int, int,  
QTextCharFormat const&)in TeXHighlighter.o
   "_Hunspell_suggest", referenced from:
       CompletingEdit::contextMenuEvent(QContextMenuEvent*)        in  
ld: symbol(s) not found
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I have hunspell installed with macports, but somehow there seems to be  
a problem.

Any ideas?
