aspell dictionary path configuration

I would like to know how to configure the dictionary path.
I currently get the following error:

Starting new Ispell process [francais] ...
ispell-init-process: Error: The file 
"/Applications/" can 
not be opened for reading.

However, the French dictionary is installed somewhere else. I've
tried the following lines in my .emacs, but they don't seem to have
any effect (I still get the same error):

(setq ispell-program-name "/opt/local/bin/aspell")
(setq ispell-aspell-data-dir "/opt/local/lib/aspell-0.60")
(setq ispell-aspell-dict-dir "/opt/local/share/aspell")

What should I do?

Note: I use GNU Emacs under Mac OS X, obtained here:
It comes with its own aspell in /Applications/
and its own English dictionaries, but I want to use the dictionaries
that have been installed at the above paths (/opt/local/...).

TIA for any information,
