This was on the list of things I put in before the branch.

run.test now looks for the test/dictionary file that is included in
the db2 sources, and uses that directly if possible (though some tests
will warn and skip because they need larger numbers of words.)
However, I'll also note that dictionary files do exist for linux; in
Debian, there is a "wenglish" package that provides them, not sure
where Slackware might have them but it should.

Well, I learned from Sam <> that this is fixed in Beta

I tried Beta 7 and it looks like a major work has been done on the
testing side of things. I found one small glitch:

the tests are dependent on the access to the dictionary
file 'words'. On Linux (Slackware96) there is no such file
to be found. The test in krb5-beta7/src/util/db2/test/run.test
fails right at the beginning of the 'make check'.

It would be a good idea to include the words file in the package
or mention that it depends on the access to this file in the
