Speex is *not* released under the GPL.

Please follow the link on the Speex home page (www.speex.org) where 
it says it's available under the Xiph.org variant of the BSD license.  
This license allows the use of Speex in closed-source projects as long 
as you follow a few simple rules outlined in the license.
