how to build SVox Pico from source

Do you want the sources from the Android git or do you want the Debian 
sources that include the build system? The Android sources can be 
downloaded by doing

git clone git:// svox-pico

If you want the source that includes the build system, do

git clone -b upstream+patches git:// 

Without the -b upstream+patches, the resulting source you will receive 
appears to be a mirror of the Android git.

The patches that allow SVox Pico to build with the --as-needed flag and 
fix the segfault on 64-bit systems are packaged together in a small 
tarball at
You don't have to be using Arch to apply either of these patches, and 
you probably only need fix-64bits.patch. If you have a 32-bit machine, 
you don't need either patch. If you do need the 64-bit patch, the link I 
provided is just the easiest one for me to find, since it's in my AUR 
package, but you can also find the patch in the Android issue tracker 
somewhere. I apologize that I don't have the direct link, but my version 
is an exact copy.
