I am trying to compile festvox. festvox is the utility to create you own festival voices.

In the current configuration of festival it is not possible to have festbox, because festvox needs some files from speech tools that are not present in the striped installation of festival that comes with archlinux.

In example, one of the files that is missing is system.mak.

I was trying, to be able to advance, to make a striped version of speech_tools, but running makepkg with the current files of festival you find in abs the installation fails. The configure doesn't complete successfully.

Could it be possible to have festival include an unstripped version of speech_tools?

Thank you
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  festival-1.96beta-2 was released on 2009-03-21 so I assume this ancient issue is no longer relevant

hmmm... the reason I stripped those off is that we typically don't ship makefiles with our packages. Festival is somewhat of a PITA to compile (broken autotools, yay!). I'll try to look into this soonish.
