Yes, there is something you can do to insure that speakup will use the 
second serial port.

Both in the installation, and in the append= in your lilo.conf, add 
speakup_ser=1 to the parameters. So, you might say, during installation:

text speakup_synth=ltlk speakup_ser=1

and in your lilo.conf:

append="speakup_synth=ltlk speakup_ser=1"

Note the double quotation marks.

PS: Don't say com1 or com2 when speaking of linux. That isn't a linux 
designation, it's a DOS/Windows designation. The correct unix/linux 
terminology is ttyS0 and ttyS1 for the first and second serial ports,
