Well, I took a look in site-lisp, and this was what I found:
1) Two ispell files, one called ispell.el.gz, one
called ispell.elc, I assume the elc was compiled from
the compressed one.
2) The ispell.el.gz said this:
;;; Spelling correction interface for GNU EMACS "ispell"
;;; $Id: ispell.el,v 2.19 1992/01/10 10:54:08 geoff Exp $
3) This is the error I get in the emacs buffer:
"Autoloading failed to define function ispell"
Number two stumps me, is it the international version interface?
