That would be my kernel. :-)

I'm not sure.
Its usually a good idea when running configure to look for the errors.
This will pipe all errors to ~/errors-conf.speechd-up:
./configure 2> ~/errors-confs.speechd-up
Now open it up in your text editor perhaps emacs and review it.

The easiest solution which I did though would be to:
-Ask me for my sources.list file off  list and then just type this 
sudo apt-get install flite espeak speechd-up speech-dispatcher
Its good to have flite to get a system to talk then you can use your 
proper synth.
And its kind of nice to have espeak...
Don't get espeak if you don't want it though.
I think the nearer you want to add to /etc/apt/sources.list is:
deb http://www.math.wisc.edu/~jheim/debian/ ./
Thats the line: the nearer is
something like this;
But the line
deb http://www.math.wisc.edu/~jheim/debian/ ./
Added to sources.list will work.

But it still makes me wonder why the fokes at debian haven't added 
speech-dispatcher at least in their repo.
Or have they?

Dunno, Be sure to look for configure script errors though.
And it may just be a lot easier to do what I said add the nearer and 
install speechd-up that way.
