It was added by the author of the Debian package, as I recall, and it isn't
part of Emacspeak. Starting Emacspeak from your emacs initialization files is
the better solution, in my opinion.

In fact, the Debian package is very out of date now, so I wouldn't recommend
it at all unless you want to be 3 major releases behind.

I run Emacspeak from a subdirectory of $HOME, after checking it out from T.V.
Raman's Subversion repository. Occasionally I run an svn update to keep it
