There's no 2.3 tag, but the and Makefile imply that 2.3 was
released in March 2022 (see commit 530060de), and the current voice files
on are "flite-2.3". So perhaps this
should be building that instead of the ~2 years old 2.2?
Hard to say if there's a specific revision that was meant to be the
release, but I could update this to 2.3 and just use the latest revision?
I'd be in favor of a _git recipe that set PV = "2.3+git${SRCPV}", but Khem
might have a different opinion.

+S = "${WORKDIR}/git"
+EXTRA_OECONF += "--enable-shared"
+do_install:append() {
+ chown -R root:root ${D}${libdir}/*
This seems a bit odd, I'm curious what prompted adding it?
The installed files had local user and group IDs that caused host
contamination error.
Hrm, that suggests upstream have a broken Makefile using "cp -p", it could
be worthwhile to poke them about it. We have had a recipe for an older
version in AGL for quite a while and didn't see it, so it seems like
something changed.
