There is no port for Text::Aspell, so I had to install from source.

Text::Aspell depends on XML::DOM and CGI, which I installed from the
ports system.  (p5-XML-DOM-1.43,

The "make test" keeps failing for the source install of Text::Aspell,
but I did "make install" anyway, and all seems to be working now.
