Description Aleksey Romanov 2012-08-30 00:10:05 UTC
1. Aspell sees only url filter

aspell dump filters
url            filter to skip URL like constructs

Compare it with:

aspell dump filters  
url            filter to skip URL like constructs
email          filter for skipping quoted text in email messages
tex            filter for dealing with TeX/LaTeX documents
sgml           filter for dealing with generic SGML/XML documents
html           filter for dealing with HTML documents
context        experimental filter for hiding delimited contexts
nroff          filter for dealing with Nroff documents
texinfo        filter for dealing with Texinfo documents

2. As the result emacs ispell package fails with 

ispell-init-process: Error: The filter "nroff" does not exist


aspell need dynamic linking library (libdl). FreeBSD does not have this library but its functionality provided by libc.

So, the easiest way to fix is to run configure to get proper link statements generated and then patch generated settings.h enable appropriate compilations.
How-To-Repeat: Just install the port and try dumping its filters

Do we need fix?


Comment 3 Baptiste Daroussin freebsd_committer 2012-09-24 10:56:23 UTC
Can you give more details?

From my testings, aspell is built with dlopen support
