I would suggest taking that up with whoever is maintaining the official
package, or offering to help with it.

Linux distributions, on the whole, don't have a good record of maintaining
Emacspeak packages. I don't know why this is the case, since it's easy to
compile and install, and the dependencies haven't changed much over time.
Perhaps most people, like me, simply prefer to run it directly from an svn
checkout and thus there isn't much motivation to maintain packages.
