Hi Shaun:

My guess is that it's because you're using an already patched kernel tree.
To give you a more accurate answer, pipe the output and errors to a text
file so we can look at it.  Do this by typing:

./install >output.txt 2>&1

where output.txt is the file you want to dump the output to, and install is
the speakup install script.  The > symbol tells the shell to direct
standard output to the named file, and 2>&1 tells the shell to direct
standard error to standard output.  I know you'd think that the order
should be different, but it needs to be this way for some reason.
