I don't see any russian voice ports available in the FreeBSD tree:

I pasted here a link to site, where can be get archive, this:

this archive simply need to be unpacked, no additional actions required.
Can this be included? :)

About kttsd - files which  are generated is OK, both english and russian, I
can play them with mplayer - all text is generated .
Seems some problem with phonon system, I don't see other reasons why it
can't wokring.
 I remember you changed start system's sound from using internal system to
simply mplayer blabla for similar reason, so maybe there will be no
workarounds for a while :(
