Ok. I now have Orca installed, and will comment inline below.

Installed, but had to install the -dev package.

I always use --prefix=/usr as well.

listing of files that I have:

luke luke-laptop:~$ ls -l /usr/lib/orbit-2.0
total 324
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  74456 2005-03-01 16:36
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 194214 2005-02-07 05:39 Everything_module.a
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   1044 2005-02-07 05:39
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  27640 2005-02-07 05:39
-rw-r--r--  1 root root    850 2005-01-27 03:09
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   8432 2005-01-27 03:09

And this is what the files in this directory belong to:

luke luke-laptop:~$ dpkg --search usr/lib/orbit-2.0
libgnome-speech3: /usr/lib/orbit-2.0/
liborbit2-dev: /usr/lib/orbit-2.0/Everything_module.a
libgnome-speech3: /usr/lib/orbit-2.0/
liborbit2-dev: /usr/lib/orbit-2.0/
liborbit2: /usr/lib/orbit-2.0/
libgnome-speech3, liborbit2-dev, libbonobo2-common, liborbit2: 
libbonobo2-common: /usr/lib/orbit-2.0/

The library you refer to does not exist, even though I do in fact have 
at-spi on my system. I am now going to see why it is not being built.

Further news as it comes to hand.
