[OS X TeX] Problem with aspell

I am converting from 10.4 PPC to 10.5 INTEL. I just installed the MacTex
2008 package and downloaded MacTextras. Because I had used ispell/aspell
for text files and in my alpine mailing program, I installed aspell. I
cannot get it to work.
I went to the preference panes and check English and the three English US
dictionaries and checked the filters for html, latex, etc. I even
restarted, never knowing when one needs to. I see aspell libraries in
But when I tried
aspell -c hole_friday.txt
Error: No word lists can be found for the language "en_US".
When I try to do a spell check in alpine, I get a "Alternate speller
terminated abnormally (-1)"
Many years ago I recall having to compress dicitionaries for ispell, but
the documentation does not discuss that so I am assuming I have done what
I need to do.
I am unfamiliar with excalibur. Would it do what I want to do?
I would appreciate suggestions.
p.s. I apologize for any spelling errors in this message ...
