This is a sensible comment. I think I tend to agree with you.

Yes, the current ispell.sl give cryptic error messages when ispell/aspell is
not installed :
* In the *ispell* buffer:
execvp of aspell failed!
* In the echo area:
This two messages give the false impression that aspell/isepll was launched
Paul, could you add a test for the existence of the aspell/spell program in
start_ispell_process and send the warning message Jörg suggests above?
