I have installed claws-mail with kde5 on a FreeBSD 11.3 machine.
Everything works fine except that claws cannot find the spell checker.
I can activate it, but no choice is given for what spell checker to
use. This is the error message that pops up when I attempt to write an

Spell checker could not be started.
Couldn't initialize None dictionary:
Couldn't initialize None speller.

The "Spelling" is also greyed out.
