First I must check for other byte-order dependencies, and make some
changes to the espeakedit program. I will let you know when it's ready
to try.

You will need to compile the  espeakedit  program, which shouldn't be a
problem.  You'll need the wxWidgets libraries, but these may already be
installed if you are running Ubuntu.  You need the packages:
libwxgtk2.6 and libwxgtk2.6-dev.

Once it's compiled, hopefully you will be able to just do:
  epseakedit --compile

and eSpeak will then be able speak OK.
