I tried this, now I have a lot of symbolic links in /Library/ 
Application\ Support/cocoAspell. But trying spell check a buffer using  
the english dictionary still yields the error message:
Local Ispell dictionary set to english
Starting new Ispell process [english] ...
ad-Orig-error: Error: The file "/Library/Application Support/ 
cocoAspell/aspell6-de-20030222-1/english" can not be opened for reading.

How can I force Aquamacs not to look for the english dictionary in the  

Viele Grüße
