No, they aren't.  Look more closely at the PKGBUILD.
How did you come to this conclusion?
If you're trying to use the "device" setting in espeak's configuration
files to redirect espeak's output to another sound card, it won't work,
because of an espeak bug.  The option wasn't being parsed correctly.
AFAIK, it is fixed in the testing versions of espeak.
