My mail bounced, so I will post it here.

Yes. Emacs ispell.elc expect ispell version 4.0 and the ispell that comes
with Slackware is version 3.0.x.
The trouble is that ispell v3.0 has a better user interface (I think)
than ispell v4.0. With the documents that come with ispell v4.0, they
say also that you presumably will use ispell in combination with emacs.
If you are interested in ispell v4.0, you can find it at prep.ai.mit.edu
(the GNU source site) in directory /pub/gnu/.
