The only packages, I know, are for Fedora 6
probable not usable with the complex dependency sheme.

You may need the datebase too


Requirements to compile on Fedora and EL 5 ....
# yum install sqlite-devel aspell-devel libnotify-devel \
gnome-desktop-devel libxml2-devel gtk2-devel wxGTK-devel
....... and for Fedora : espeak-devel

'espeak', 'espeak-devel' : not available for Redhat EL.
espeak-1.24-1.fc6.i386.rpm, espeak-devel-1.24-1.fc6.i386.rpm
will do for EL5, when compiling xfardic-0.8.1 .

If you want 'xfardic-0.11.5a', a newer 'espeak' must be build.
( espeak versions from 1.29 ). Requirements : 'portaudio-devel' .
E.g. : espeak-1.31-5.fc9.src.rpm ( src.rpm = source code)
... will build 'espeak' + 'espeak-devel' rpm packages with
the command # 'rpmbuild -bb espeak.spec'

Example spec files , xfardic-0.8.1 and -0.11.5a for EL5, attached ....
rename to suffix ' .spec ' before use.
Both files are "scetches", the fields 'Buildrequires', 'Requires',
'%clean' are missing, but work fine with # rpmbuild -bb <file>.spec .
Should work with Fedora too.
