Re: [SpeechIO-195] speechd v0.54 - morse code support

Ok, the new archive should be attached...my notes are in the CHANGELOG
(and I changed the behavior of 'make dist' so it doesn't have a tar.gz
file inside the archive).

I havne't tested it, just modified it (no festival on the laptop right now).

if someone could test, I'd appricaite feedback so we can fixify it...
