DECtalk Software TTS still mute on this Debian Woody system


Since the day after Christmas, I've been trying to get this emacspeak
server to talk.  The DECtalk software works.  TCL servers for other
devices work.

I have built the libraries in
"/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/software-dtk/" according
to Nath's little "how-to" on his web site.  the environment variable
'EMACSPEAK_DIR' is set to "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/".
When I run the server in isolation with "tcl
/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/dtk-soft", the line
"calling tts startup" is printed, then, nothing.  There isn't even a
tcl prompt; I have to kill the process from another shell.

If you have this setup working, I'd like to know what you did.
Meanwhile, I'm using eflite or a hardware doubletalk for speech.
