This confuses me now. Are you saying that speechd links statically to
these libraries? If so, their presence wouldn't matter on the machine
on which speechd ultimately runs on. I'm sure I have both libraries
here for building but I don't know how to tell how the program was
ultimately linked. Config.log shows me that both ALSA and libao
support are active for the compile.
Right now, speechd seems to work fine for me. I don't have pulse
installed yet so when I had attempted to config with --with-pulse,
configure errored out; I pretty much expected that but thought I'd
give it a go to see what would happen. I guess for future package
distribution I should install pulse on my system so speechd binaries
will support if the end user wants to use it.
I'm just taking a step at a time here to be sure I don't lose speech
along the way.
