Do you mean Word Perfect ?
Wordperfect-8.0 used to run on FreeBSD 3.4-RELEASE & was free, 
while Corel charged for the MS based version !

I have distfile
MD5 (GUILG00.GZ) = 386d2c4c1422992e8f8242bd74f3f705
-r--r--r--  1 jhs  staff  23730473 Mar 12  2002 GUILG00.GZ

It got taken out of FreeBSD ports/ some years back.

You might need to either:
	upgrade port to run it on a new BSD
	run it on an old machine
	or emulator of an old FreeBSD
