I had initially said that it might be easier to install from the
archive.  I still think this might be true.  My reasoning is that it is
much easier to run:

apt-get install emacspeak eflite

than it is to do the steps provided.  Mike, you did mention that you
were interested in a "test drive" so to speak, right?  I just felt that
trying out emacspeak would be easier in this manner.  Then, if you like
it, jump in with both feet and install from source.

I guess it all depends on how much time you wish to spend and how likely
you feel you are going to be using emacspeak.  I think most everyone on
the list would say that it has proven to be the best solution for the
way we work and if you are willing to wrap your head around emacs it can
be a huge productivity booster.

Just my opinion... worth everything you paid for it.
