I am trying to install aspell for Python 3 (on MacOS X 10.11), and have encountered an issue (the same one) using both pip and the manual installer (by cloning the git repo). I have already installed aspell using MacPorts (sudo port install aspell) as well as the english dictionary (sudo port install aspell-dict-en).
The error is obvious (aspell.h cannot be found), however I have no idea how to fix it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
$ sudo python3 setup.3.py build
building 'aspell' extension

Asked the same question on the project's GitHub page. Original can be found here. Copied here for convenience.
In case anybody encounters the same issue, I had installed aspell using MacPorts (sudo port install aspell) and had to include the dir '/opt/local/include', which is where the header file for aspell (aspell.h) was located. Hence, my setup.3.py looks like this:
module = Extension('aspell', libraries = ['aspell'], library_dirs = ['/usr/local/lib/'], include_dirs = ['/opt/local/include'], sources = ['aspell.c'] )
