You need dictionary for yours language if you wont spell-check to work.
It is explained on wiki.

OpenOffice uses myspell so aspell is not needed (although it can be used
if you like to use aspell dicts)

The recent version i try is 3.3.0beta in which spellcheck work fine.

Now i see some mention of removing enchant in localisation patch so i
wonder why is that done.
GtkSpell (so PyGtKSpell also) is dependant of Enchant library, so it
must be PyEnchant they mention (as your code show) but it is just small
pure python (ctypes) extension module so what is problem in keeping it

PyEnchant allow as in the past to fix problem with broken dicts engines
(hebrew and turkish ones) as gtkspell does not expose any functions to
deal with them. It is also been suggested to replace (py)gtkspell with
pyenchant entirely.

We used pyenchant only to build a list of installed languages, but gramps spellcheck has always been 100% using gtkspell.
I looked into replacing gtkspell with the pyenchant, and it would be less usable if we don't implement it by ourselves as gtkspell. (no red wiggle underline but instead you need to use a toolbar button which then lists words with problems)

We received a patch so as not to need python-enchant anymore for the list of languages. It works in ubuntu 10.04 -11-04 and Mac, so the old Turkish bug is gone at least a year.
If we still need python-enchant for windows, it should come from the windows developers as a patch checking against windows to import it.
