Your debian/ works just fine. I didn't reviewed the package itself, but
I can build a package with it.

So where is the problem? I guess it lays in the name of your orig.tar.gz
file. Your upstream dir should be named "aspell-ar-large-1.2-0" and
aspell-ar-large_1.2-0.orig.tar.gz and the upstream source (which is
actually just a repack of the files from aspell's site).

Let me know when you think the package is ready for review, and I'll
guide you how to load it to the subverion.

good luck.
