I've now re-written the introduction to the document to be a bit less confusing; the methodology given in sections 2 and 3 remain unchanged.

I found that I need to force few symbolic links to have a non /usr/local installation of aspell working with cocoaspell. I use MacPorts in /opt/local, so my explanation works for that. This is the same hack I had to use in Mavericks, Yosemite, etc:

  1.  Install aspell and all the necessary dictionaries from MacPorts.
  2.  Install cocoaspell without aspell and without the dictionaries.
  3.  Do the following from Terminal (it adds symbolic links):

sudo -s
mkdir -p "/Library/Application Support/cocoAspell"
mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
mkdir -p /usr/local/lib
cd "/Library/Application Support/cocoAspell"
ln -s /opt/local/share/aspell .
cd /usr/local/bin
ln -s /opt/local/bin/aspell .
cd /usr/local/lib
ln -s /opt/local/lib/libaspell.* .
