I'm trying to install pico from ports on 5.0 and i get the message below
about /usr/share/dict/words not existing (its empty) and I don't see where
in sysinstall i can install it...

can anyone point me in the right direction?

you need to install /usr/share/dict/words from the 'dict' distribution first
(This is done using /stand/sysinstall.  The 'textproc/dict' port in the
 tree is NOT what you need.)
