debian don't have an /etc/rc.d/rc.local as such,
what I did for speakup, was the following.
created a script in /etc/init.d anc called it naturally speakup.
then I did the following.
update-rc.d speakup start 20 1 2 3 4 5 . stop 20 0 1 6 .
the syntax for this is as follows.

update-rc.d script start n runlevels n n n . stop n runlevels n n n .
note the period at the end of the space separated list of run levels.
