  I looked at the post but cannot say anything. I experienced
  myself problems with flite and my opinion is that flite is
  not enough maintained. Anyway festival itself compiles and
  works perfectly with kernel 2.6.22.5 and gcc 4.1.2 i.e. very
  modern tools. Now another question: Do you absolutely want to
  keep emacspeak or are you ready to use speechd-el ? In the
  latter case there's absolutely no problem it works with
  festival. In the former case the only thing I can do for you
  is to send you the code I wrote to connect directely emacs to
  festival. But unfortunately this code is very partial and
  probably obsolete since it was written for emacsspeak 24.
