Downgrading gcc only sweeps the problem under the carpet, it
does not fix the problem.

On Debian/Ubuntu systems :

    sudo apt-get install apt-file
    sudo apt-file update


    apt-file search speex_preprocess.h

will tell you that the file you are looking for is in the libspeexdsp-dev

Apt-file is a very useful program.
