Just pulled updates and tested. Unfortunately still not working.

- When I start with default settings i.e. using pactl and stored icon sounds I no longer hear the emacspeak.ogg startup icon at all.

- When I change the play program to sox, it does now set the correct path to /usr/bin/play, but it frails with the same wrong-type-argument stringp nil error. Looking at the backtrace, it also looks like the ems--play-args is not getting included in the call. The top of the stacktrace is

make-process(:name "Player" :buffer nil :command ("/usr/bin/play" nil nil))

Sorry it isn't a full backtrace, but the error breaks emacs such that you cannot integer any commands and have ot kill it from outside.

Most of these were because things are now simpler with only ogg files.

1. emacspeak-speak-version is simpler it  just plays an icon
2. because vanilla bin/play handles .ogg, we can just use that
   (doesn't do mp3)
3. I still haven't chased down cases where we get a null icon after
   the above changes, let me know if that still happens.
