A very tedious task since the installer doesn't have an un-install
option. I used Pacifist and looked in the three receipt pkgs and
manually deleted everything I found listed there. Then I re-installed
the Inter version and it all seems to work. I'd bet that there is some
configuration file, etc., that is different since all the binary
applications were Intel.
In any case it's now working and I'm back to happily using cocoAspell.
