The install process itself is flawless.  The only problem
is that the dtk-software speech server for emacspeak
hangs if used with the rtk shared object libraries.
i.e., the `say' binary works (even if it's buggy anyway,
it cuts of the last few sentences of a text-file if
specified via -fi (file-in)).

That is a good question.  I've asked here once if
anyone got the RTK version + dtk-software
speech server working.  No one answered, except
raman, how is using the SDK afaik.

I personally tested on 3 different debian boxes, no
