Your proposition is appreciated, but this port is only a slave port:
version number, distinfo and plist are included into textproc/aspell.
There is a project on my TODO-list to separate dictionaries from the
Aspell port, Serge Gagnon already worked on this, but it is not ready.
When done, this port will be really a port, which will install
dictionaries, and it will be possible to add / remove dictionaries
without upgrading Aspell.
