build speakup as modules with standard 2.6.26 kernel docs?

Should I downgrade the kernel?
This is from intrepid:
uname -r gives:
The relevant part of module assistant install speakup gives:
  CC [M]  /usr/src/modules/speakup/main.o
/usr/src/modules/speakup/main.c: In function 
/usr/src/modules/speakup/main.c:492: error: 
struct tty_ldisc' has no member named 
make[4]: *** [/usr/src/modules/speakup/main.o] 

apt-get install speakup-source
says it is the latest version.
Any ideas?
TIA, Willem
