If you haven't found the reason already, what the error message is 
telling you here is that the aspect executable is trying to find the 
libstratimikos.11.dylib library. You will need to make sure that it 
really exists somewhere in your system, for example under /usr or /opt, 
or under your home directory. If it does exist, then you need to make 
sure the environment variable DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH contains the directory 
in which this library is located.
