... because it will use the espeak-data in the user's home directory in

I should have said, first go into the dictsource directory, which
contains the en_rules and en_list files.  It compiles  en_rules and
en_list to make espeak-data/en_dict.

If so, you will need espeakedit running on PPC to be able to compile
the phoneme data.  Which means you need a port of the espeakedit
program to PPC.
