In the transition from

espeak-ng, version 1.49.2-6


espeak-ng, version 1.50-1

the `provides`-entry for `espeak` has disappeared, which breaks dependencies.

Additional info:
* package version(s): At least 1.50-1, not 1.49.2-6 and older.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Have `espeak-ng`, version 1.49.2-6 or older installed, which provides the `espeak`-dependency.
2. Have some package installed that depends on `espeak`, e.g. `gst-plugins-espeak`.
3. Upgrade `espeak-ng` to version 1.50-1.
4. Observe that `pacman` fails with
:: installing espeak-ng (1.50-1) breaks dependency 'espeak' required by gst-plugins-espeak
This task depends upon
