[ Sergio Oller ]
* Improved performance by reducing disk i/o on HTS voices and by avoiding
redundant HTS model reloads.
* Rewritten text2wave:
- Linear in CPU with respect to text length.

- Waves were temporary saved to disk and loaded from it.
Now, disk output is reduced by half and disk input is 
reduced to almost 0.

* Build festival-doc package
* Language selection chooses only among installed voices supporting
the requested language. (Closes: 732083)
