Yes, au_alsa.c is missing in 1.3 version.
I had must to add it and fit the patch.
But there is another issue on configure or makefile files.
-lasound is not inclued on gcc lines.

That's done, it's pending to DD's upload from mentors repositories:

No, is not a security patch, sorry. And I prefere to put new 1.3 version on
Sid/testing. So it should be stupid to build it with patch and remove it 2
weeks after with 1.3 version.
maybe see for backports.

I'm agree with you, 1.2 vox seems to be better than 1.3, I will try to build
package with another vox.

I send a Cc of this e-mail to debian accessibility team, because for the moment
(fixed with new version), bugs from flite don't send Cc to this mailing list.

Best regards
