Default Text to speech (save to file) - text2wave broken

It seems that the script text2wave bundled with festival is broken in FreeBSD 8.0.

The situation seems to have been constant for a few years already, as you can see from this thread:

What I want to do is read a text file, send it through a text-to-speech application and save the result to a file (no playback through the soundcard). The URL seen above seems to answer that question and I tried to paste the few lines of code contained in the last post into a script file and used festival to execute it, but it didn't work. I don't even know how to program a "Hello World" in Scheme so bear with me Therefore, maybe I wasn't using the script correctly.

Besides text2wave, is there an alternative that could do what I need?

Thank you!
