4.4.2 Notes on the Prefix Option

The ‘prefix’ option is there to allow Aspell to easily be relocated. Changing ‘prefix’ will change all directory names relative to the new prefix that are not explicitly set. For example if ‘prefix’ was ‘/usr/local/aspell’ and ‘dict-dir’ has a default value of ‘/usr/local/aspell/dict’ than changing ‘prefix’ to ‘/opt/aspell’ will also change the default value of ‘dict-dir’ to ‘/opt/aspell/dict’. Note that modifying ‘prefix’ will only affect the default compiled in values of directories. If a directory option is explicitly given a value then changing the value of ‘prefix’ has no effect on that directory option.
