 This is correct, and ideally we use "make install" along with passing
 variables on the command line to make to get this done.

 So as a user, do you use "make install" at all when you build the
 drivers -- I'm talking about, for example,
 emacspeak/servers/linux-espeak?  I'm thinking that you don't, and you
 just leave the .so file where it is built.  Is that right?
