Hi all,

     This is my first attempt to build Speakup into a 2.6 kernel.  I'm 
using the RPM build system in Fedora.  The version of gcc is 3.3.2, which, 
I suspect, is the hangup.  I've included the last few messages from the 
failure.  I hope it's enough.
In file included from drivers/char/speakup/spk_priv.h:33,
                 from drivers/char/speakup/speakup.c:52:
include/asm/io.h:53: error: `currcons' undeclared here (not in a function)
include/asm/io.h:53: error: syntax error before '.' token
include/asm/io.h:53: warning: function declaration isn't a prototype
