The OCRopus line recognition command is "ocropus lines2fsts"; by
default, it uses the line recognizer defined in ocr-line, which has
nothing to do with Tesseract.  OCRopus doesn't even link with
Tesseract by default anymore.

After the beta release, we hope to restore Tesseract as an optional
line recognizer as a plug-in (since OCRopus now supports plugins).
