we have two (conflicting) speex ports in the tree:
multimedia/speex which is version 1.0.5, source dated 07-May-2005
multimedia/speex-devel which is version 1.1.12, source dated  15-Feb-2006
for which there is no maintainer other than this list.

Some packages start checking for recent (1.1.x) version of speex,
i think it would be good to upgrade multimedia/speex to 1.1.12
rather than patching the various configure files.

A comment in the CVS repository says that:


	Speex 1.1 is backwards compatible with speex 1.0
	and can be used as a drop in replacement
	for audio/speex

and the only reason for not upgrading multimedia/speex before
was that speex-devel is marked broken for 4.x - this should not
be a concern anymore, right ?
