Hello Chime,

I happened to get teh answer today (smile). So:

either (linked to from: then from
(Yes it is shipped in OpenSUSE too)

I didn't diff the two sources, but successfully built the one from on Slint.
Caveat: you will need to add the -fPIC options to CFLAGS in brld/Makefile, line #21 and also replace
#include <libspeechd.h>
#include <speech-dispatcher/libspeechd.h>
in speechdlib.h, line 4
as (here at least) this header from speech-dispatcher is installed as /usr/include/speech-dispatcher/libspeechd.h
There is no configure script, that's why I did it that way.

Hope this helps.
