If we're not applying the patches anymore, we should probably also remove them from nixpkgs.

See @lheckemann comment

This was added only to build hunspellDicts.de_DE: [1]
The patches came from an older PR (taken from Debian): [2]
but aren't needed to build the dictionary.

Some of these still might make sense when updated from Why they did not upstream them even after all these years is beyond me.

Or if this is intended only for the German dictionary we might make it local as originally suggested.

Or maybe we are fine with vanilla ispell, even though some of those patches look like they should definitely be upstreamed.

I'd vote for just landing this, up-to-date vanilla ispell probably is better matching the nixos way of doing things than debian-old ispell.

@jtojnar What do you think about merging this as is?

I would definitely prefer vanilla package but would like still hear from @timor or @bennofs why they included these patches.

I cannot comment on these patches, sorry. I merely re-used @bennofs' code (for the sole purpose of building the German hunspell dictionaries).
