One thing I've found is that the new Japanese Carbon Emacs comes 
without aspell dictionaries. If your own /sw/bin/aspell programme 
fails, there's another one in 

To make AUCTeX work you'll need to change in 
/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/site-lisp/tex-site.el two 
variables. Here are the corrected settings:

line #55: (defvar TeX-lisp-directory 
line #67: (defcustom TeX-auto-global 

Aspell: at line #154: (setq ispell-program-name "aspell") is set. Maybe 
it helps to set it to: (setq ispell-program-name 
"/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/bin/aspell"). For me it helped 
to make line #154 a comment and ispell worked very fine: it now was 
even able to recognise 'sérifs' as a normal word without UTF-8 

All path names starting with "/Applications/Emacs.app" assume that 
you've installed that Emacs simply by dragging it in your Applications 
folder. If you did it otherwise you'd need to adapt that path name.
