It can be done this way:

I took the qtopia sources and compile them. A tool named `qdawggen' will
be build in the process. The word lists qtopia uses are stored as DAWGs
in .dawg files. qdawggen creates these .dawg files form plaintext word

Unfortunately the source word list for german was not included in the
qtopia source snapshot. So I got igerman98 [1] and created a word list.
A simple sed script translated every ö, ä, ü, ß into oe, ae, ue, ss.
qdawggen then built a DAWG from it.
