Never mind all that...

I had missed a much simpler solution:  Set the environment variable
ASPELL_CONF yourself.  That's all aquamacs-configure-aspell does for you
anyway, but Aquamacs won't try to do so if the variable is already set.

I added this to my Preferences.el, and was able to use english spellchecking
even with the aspell6-de-20030222-1 dictionary also installed:

(setenv "ASPELL_CONF" "conf-dir
/Library/Application Support/cocoAspell/aspell6-en-6.0-0")

Good luck,
