gnome starts, but no speech

Hi listers,
Well, I reverted to using a tarred version of gnome 2.4 I had from another installation to get gnome 2.4 up and running on my redhat enterprise advanced server 3.
I untarred the setup into /opt/gnome-2.4, modified my environment to point to it and tried startx.
The results... nothing is spoken. it did work on the earlier installation, so I know it is my setup somehow.
I saved the output from startx into a log file and it looks like this:

My .orbitrc file looks like this:
And before you ask, yes I did enable accessibility using the following script:
gconftool-2 --type bool --set /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility true
gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/gnopernicus/srcore/br_active true
gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/gnopernicus/braille/device BRLTTY
gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/gnopernicus/braille/translation_table en_US
gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/gnopernicus/srcore/sp_active true
any thoughts would be appreciated.
