I saw your post about your solution. For info, the contents of
my /usr/share/festival/festival.scm are:
(defvar server_access_list '(localhost)
I also have a /etc/festival.scm file the contents of that file are:
(set! server_access_list '(localhost spot))
Spot is the name of this box. My entry in /etc/hosts for IP 127.0.0.1
127.0.0.1 localhost spot localhost.localdomain
Hope this helps.
