The problem is that hasn't been updated. Daniel
Drake checked in the fixes for 2.6.20 sometime early yesterday
morning,and if retrieved directly from itself,
speakup compiles into, and works fine with 2.6.20. 

I did notice however that the date in the version string wasn't changed to
reflect yesterday's changes to speakup.c.
