The consensus (as I recall, this was a recent discussion with a LOT of
messages) was that after the next release of Emacs the Carbon/Cocoa
issue would be reconsidered, and probably the Cocoa port would be merged
in to replace the Carbon port.  Meanwhile the CVS Carbon port is
deprecated and keyboard input there is broken AFAIK.

Emacs.App is the Cocoa port that's being considered.  It has a mailing
list and lots of helpful users, so post about your flyspell problem
there and you should get a reply.
