`ispell-local-dictionary-alist' is what you want.
`ispell-dictionary-base-alist' has the last resort values if nothing else
fits. `ispell-base-dicts-override-alist' is mostly for distros or sysadmins
to overrride values from `ispell-dictionary-base-alist' and will not
override auto-detected values. None of both are created with a defcustom.
