I have made a new release of eflite which fixes the issue with speech
stopping under glibc 2.3.2. Go to http://eflite.sf.net to get it.

>From the eflite web site:
EFlite is a speech server for Emacspeak and other screen readers that
allows them to interface with Festival Lite, a free text-to-speech engine
developed at the CMU Speech Center as an off-shoot of Festival. EFlite is
still in beta, but I have been using it successfully with Yasr to
get speech on my notebook under Linux without having to lug my Speak-out around.
It uses Festival Lite's code to interface with the sound driver and, therefore,
should work with some versions of ALSA, but I have only tested it
with the OSS sound drivers so far.
