Oops. I had a stray self-built aspell in /usr/local
After uninstalling that I tried again.
It still fails (as does the gnome-spell configure script).
Doing some investigation on my RH-9 machine:
[david@shirehorse1 enchant]$ rpm -q --info aspell

Summary : A spelling checker.
Aspell is a spelling checker designed to eventually replace Ispell.
Aspell's primary advantage (over Ispell) is greater ability to
suggesting correct spellings. Aspell includes both compile-time and
run-time support for non-English languages and can spellcheck (La)TeX
and HTML files.
The configure test is for "new_aspell_config"; I tried this:
[david@shirehorse1 enchant]$ nm -D /usr/lib/libaspell.so.10 | grep
000562c0 T _ZN6aspell7Manager11init_configEv
So as far as I can tell, there isn't a new_aspell_config in aspell
packaged with RH9. I tried hacking the configure.in script to check for
other symbols that were present, but without success; perhaps I
misunderstood something along the way?
I'm also now getting numerous sed errors as reported by Rui Miguel
Seabra in another reply to your original post.

Thanks! Looks interesting.
