Debian package emacspeak_15-3.deb

Is there a good reason why you're moving the compiled .elc
files out of the install directory?
This is why your previous package broke--
it's also different than how other Linuxuns install emacs. 

If there is something more here than Debian wanting to be
different one would like to know:-)>>>>> "James" == James R Van Zandt <jrv@vanzandt.mv.com> writes:

    James> emacspeak for DEBIAN ----------------------

    James> Emacspeak is authored by T. V. Raman
    James> <raman@cs.cornell.edu>.  These are the primary
    James> changes made in building the Debian package: html
    James> and plain text versions of the documentation were
    James> added.  A configuration script
    James> (/usr/sbin/emacspeakconfig) and associated speech
    James> server descriptions
    James> (/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/blurbs/*)
    James> were added.  Manual pages for emacspeak and the
    James> configuration script were added.  Minor changes
    James> are listed in changelog.Debian.

    James> Starting with version 11.0, the Emacspeak sources
    James> include a speech server written in C++ for the
    James> IBM ViaVoice speech synthesis software.  However,
    James> it depends on the ViaVoice runtime kit which does
    James> not meet the Debian Free Software Guidelines.
    James> (It is available only as object code, and only
    James> under a temporary license.)  Therefore, support
    James> for ViaVoice is not included in this Debian
    James> package.  IBM is making beta copies of ViaVoice
    James> for i386 available without charge.  If you would
    James> like to try it, you can find some information at
    James> http://www-4.ibm.com/software/speech/dev/ttssdk_linux.html
    James> and download from
    James> http://www6.software.ibm.com/dl/viavoice/linux-p.
    James> You need two files - the software developer kit
    James> and the run time kit.  They come in the form of
    James> two tar files which in turn contain RPM files.
    James> You can convert these to Debian packages and
    James> install them as follows:

    James> 	tar -xf viavoice_tts_rtk_5.tar tar -xf
    James> viavoice_tts_sdk_5.tar fakeroot alien -d
    James> ViaVoice_TTS_rtk-5.1-1.2.i386.rpm fakeroot alien
    James> -d ViaVoice_TTS_sdk-5.1-1.2.i386.rpm dpkg -i
    James> --force-overwrite
    James> viavoice-tts-rtk_5.1-2.2_i386.deb \
    James> viavoice-tts-sdk_5.1-2.2_i386.deb

    James> (The last step must be performed as root.  If you
    James> run alien as root, you may omit the use of
    James> fakeroot.  The --force-overwrite flag is
    James> necessary because several files appear in both
    James> packages.)  At this point, please read
    James> /usr/doc/ViaVoiceTTS/ttssd.lic.la.txt.gz,
    James> /usr/doc/ViaVoiceTTS/ttsrt.lic.ila.txt.gz, and
    James> /usr/doc/ViaVoiceTTS/ttsrt.lic.ila.eval.txt.gz
    James> and decide whether you can accept the terms of
    James> the IBM license.  If so, you can then unpack the
    James> Emacspeak sources (either from
    James> debian/dists/stable/main/source/editors/emacspeak_*.0.orig.tar.gz
    James> on a cdrom or a Debian archive mirror, or else
    James> from
    James> ftp://ftp.cs.cornell.edu/pub/raman/emacspeak/)
    James> and follow the instructions in
    James> linux-outloud/NOTES to build and install the
    James> speech server.

    James> Starting with version 10.0, Dr. Raman has
    James> rewritten the documentation files.  Approximately
    James> 100 commands are described there, compared to
    James> over 800 in the documentation shipped with the
    James> previous release.  Therefore, the user should pay
    James> particular attention to the section "Using Online
    James> Help".

    James> Many command-line applications can be run under
    James> emacs, and can therefore be made accessible with
    James> emacspeak.  Much of this is explained in the
    James> documentation entitled "Running Terminal Based
    James> Applications".  However, it is worth emphasizing
    James> this point: "For regular shell interaction just
    James> use M-x shell instead of using the terminal
    James> emulator."

    James> The example file "tables.html" was supplied by
    James> Dr. Raman in a separate email.  It may be found
    James> in /usr/doc/emacspeak/examples.  It includes a
    James> sample table with three columns (labeled "item",
    James> "date", and "amount"), and three rows.  For a
    James> discussion of the support for tables in emacspeak
    James> and w3, see NEWS (or NEWS.gz) in
    James> /usr/doc/emacspeak.

    James> The Emacspeak-HOWTO contains additional
    James> documentation.  The plain text form of this can
    James> be found in the Debian package doc-linux, and is
    James> installed as /usr/doc/HOWTO/Emacspeak-HOWTO.gz.
    James> Other formats are also available.  For example,
    James> these can be found at sunsite.unc.edu:

    James> /pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/other-formats/dvi/Emacspeak-HOWTO.dvi.gz
    James> /pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/other-formats/html/Emacspeak-HOWTO-html.tar.gz
