Orca runs from a gui and I personally try and use speakup or brltty when

Hmm, that's an interesting thought... I personally think sticking to the
mkdir build && cd build && ../tools/configure
then a 'make' or make -j...
A blind person is more than capable of reading a few lines of output,
and I'm sure running a configure script and a make isn't to
difficult... (I'm blind myself and use debian (a standard installation),
But of course the script would be a boness because you can always choose
to use the standard commands.
