Re: Emacspeak still fails after unicode merge

Hi Robert,

I'm about to try an update of emacs and emacspeak and will report what I
find. However, I just wanted to point out that CVS emacs now has the
unicode and antialiased font support (enabled with the
--enable-font-backend') option. I was thinking that maybe --with-type1 in
yor ocnfig may be introducing some error? Just thought it was worth
mentioning as it appears most of the font stuff has been re-worked. 

Also, the default X support is now GTK, so there is no need for the
--with-x-toolkit=gtk or even the --with-x. the configure command I've been
using is

./configure --enable-font-backend --prefix=/usr/local

I last updated emacspeak two days ago. 


P.S. for those wondering why I'm bothering witht he new font support when I
can't see the screen anyway, its because my partner uses emacs as well and
she likes the new antialiased font support. Apparently it looks quite good.
