User-agent: Gnus/5.090013 (Oort Gnus v0.13) Emacs/21.2 (i386-msvc-nt5.1.2600)

Hello.  I'm running GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-msvc-nt5.1.2600) of
2002-03-19 on buffy, on Windows XP Pro, and I'm using Cygwin.

When I attempt to run ispell, I get in my *messages* buffer:

check-ispell-version: /usr/local/bin/ispell version 3 release 3.1.12
or greater is required

The program name is set as follows:

,----[ C-h v ispell-program-name RET ]
| ispell-program-name's value is 
| "/usr/local/bin/ispell"
| Documentation:
| Program invoked by M-$ and M-x ispell-region commands.
| You can customize this variable.

>From within NTEmacs:

,----[ which ispell ]
| /usr/bin/ispell

>From a bash shell (ignore the screwed up cygwin prompt):

| Aü"@jrancier /
| $ which ispell
| /usr/local/bin/ispell
| Aü"@jrancier /
| $ ispell

| word:

I'll assume that NTEmacs is trying to using /usr/bin/ispell, even
though I explicitly named /usr/local/bin/ispell.  Is there some other
customization I need to make as well as ispell-program-name?
