Correct. This is only going to work with 10.12.

The ASPECT 1.5 requires deal 8.4, but the current development version
requires 8.5 or newer.

It depends on your definition of "easy". Check the deal.II wiki and
download page: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.dealii.org_download.html&d=DwIFaQ&c=Ngd-ta5yRYsqeUsEDgxhcqsYYY1Xs5ogLxWPA_2Wlc4&r=c08Btfq4m9QEScXN3ZQwLZzzWQE7S8CYq1IYuzKV_Zk&m=9VIUBf-sOUduw3BPBv-xIyy_HimSruEiEKH7LgjYCZs&s=58fpA0BwtvBNV2a2HKeC437nomV03iWzv_GahGv75Qg&e=  I would recommend
using one of the source based installers: homebrew, candi, or spack.
