[OS X Emacs] spell checking - once more

The reason is simply that I ran into a posting on another mailing- 
list that made me notice that  MacPorts creates a ~/.profile upon  
install, to add /opt/local/bin and /opt/local/sbin *before* the OS X  
defaults /usr/bin and /usr/sbin in $PATH. I want to investigate  
deeper wether I find this behaviour of modifying OS X instead of  
adding to it concerning and how it is going to influence my usage of  
MacPorts and the like. So long I am going to turn to non-MacPorts  
alternatives if there are any, and in the case of aspell this  
alternative is cocoAspell.
