Decktalk software speech for Linux

I had this installed on my Debian box and it worked fine, but I recently 
installed Fedora which is great by the way. Question is though that 
after installing the Dectalk software, I tried running the say command 
and got the following message

say: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared 
file: No such file or directory

I checked over the /etc/DECKTALK.conf file and all looks ok. I'm sure 
I'm missing a step here, but not sure what that might be. Any help 
Do I need to run something like ldconfig to update/add the libraries for 
Decktalk? I would have assumed being in the config file it would know 
where they live. 

All the libs are in /usr/local/lib and that is referenced in the config 


Btw, festival actually doesn't sound so bad, but like the Decktalk 
software as well.
