I was annoyed that ekho was not building anymore, so I found some time today to fix it. I'm not sure what changed to require these changes, but the following made it build for me:

@Huulivoide: Does the package still build for you without these changes? If not, could you please apply them?

@Vitrum-cnkj34kr8 libestools should be provided by the festival package.

Here is a PKGBUILD to update to 7.7.1

I'm not using ekho anymore, so I'm disowning it so someone else can jump in.

It seems it is. The upstream website says ekho can use either espeak or festival, but I can't find a way to disable espeak so it seems it's required even if you use festival for synthesis. I had espeak installed due to other reasons so I didn't notice.

I'll add the dependency.

I have to install espeak for this package to be built. Is it a dependency?
