addendum to viavoice on debian




the alsa version will not become the default for another year or
so.

I'm surprized that debian's 
libtool is not correctly passing the  debian specific location of
the tcl include files, 
there is probably some libtool magic that can teach it do so --
perhaps JRVZ who built the debian package would know.
