I have updated main/extensions.lst accordingly.

Please note that at the moment only two languages will have more than 
their "native" dictionary bundled: nl and ru.
Please speak up if you want more dictionaries for other languages as well.

I also updated some language names in the "Language" column on the wiki 
page to values that are understood by our build environment (especially 
the --with-lang configure switch): removed the country parts, eg fr_FR 
became fr.

Updated the download link for Norwegian due to problems with the redirect.

Finally, I added a new switch to configure.  By saying 
--disable-bundled-dictionaries you can now, well, disable the bundling 
of dictionary extensions.  More importantly it detects whether hunspell 
is available.  If not the dictionaries are not bundled because the would 
not work anyway.
