That's almost exactly how I installed it...   ;-)

One question about 'libespeak': why did you make it a C++ library, and
not a C library?  Its public API consists of structs, enums & functions
only, so I think it should be possible to make it callable from C
code[*], and most programming languages have facilities to call into C
libraries but not (easily) into C++ ones.
