* What's it?
ibus-skk is an implementation of the SKK (Simple Kana-Kanji) input

$ ./configure --prefix=/usr # --libdir=/usr/lib64
$ make
$ sudo make install

* How to report bugs

problem is not specific to ibus-skk.
If you can write Python, it would be helpful to add some failure test
cases in engine/ and to attach the diff to the bug reports.
