The package for festival installs in /usr/bin only wrappers to the real binaries provided by speech_tools which are supposed to be in the '/usr/main' directory, the real executables are missing.
Recompiling from abs fails because the diff files included changes the definition of FESTIVAL_HOME and EST_HOME to a non-existing path, and the missing binaries are not installed anyway.

My solution:

Since the wrapper scripts are meant to add the correct path for the festival libraries but the PKGBUILD installs them in /usr/lib there is no point in having the scripts so I think the PKGBUILD should install the real binaries to /usr/bin for speech_tools like it does for festival. I modified and tested the package this way and it works. (I made it installed also festival_server, festival_server_control, text2wave and the man pages)
Attached modified diffs and PKGBUILD.

Additional info:
* package version: 1.96beta

Steps to reproduce:
execute one of the utilities provided by speech_tool, siod for example
This task depends upon
