Emacs actually needs an elisp file called ispell.el. On my debian
system it's
at /usr/share/emacs22/site-lisp/dictionaries-common/ispell.el.

ispell.el does the interfacing with /usr/bin/ispell and /usr/bin
doesn't need to be on your load path.

Maybe try a locate command to find the lisp file? The reason emacs 
doesn't say "Can't find ispell.el" is that it's able to load
precompiled elisp too, so it might equally be looking for ispell.elc :
"can't load ispell.el" would be misleading in that case.
