 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.
 Th. Thomas.
