$ port info enchant aspell ispell

enchant @1.6.0 (textproc, devel)
Variants:             universal

Description:          On the surface, Enchant appears to be a generic spell
                      checking library. You can request dictionaries from it,
                      ask if a word is correctly spelled, get corrections for a
                      misspelled word, etc. but all it really does is to provide
                      a uniform wrapper over several popular spell checking
                      libraries including aspell, ispell and AppleSpell.

aspell @0.60.6, Revision 3 (textproc)
Variants:             nls, [+]nonls, universal

Description:          Aspell is a spell checker designed to eventually replace
                      ispell. Aspell's main feature is that it does a much
                      better job of coming up with possible suggestions than
                      ispell.
