linphone originally depends on speex.1.1.12, and there is a patch
in the port to change the test and look for 1.0.5 (which may work,
but while 1.1.x is backward compatible, it is not clear that code
written to use 1.1.12 will be happy to use an older version.)

./net/asterisk-bristuff also has a patch to change the path
for the old speex location. So far, that's all.

can it be automated or it requires manually doing things ?

got it... looks like we should bump speex-devel to 1.2 :)

doing that check would be great - thanks
