Your mbrola.conf works fine, variables expanded correctly 
(speech-dispatcher 0.6.7 / hackable:1). Perhaps unexpected characters? 
For comparision, my files are there:

There is though a huge latency for talking a small text using mbrola + 
the fr5 database, around 3 seconds :-/
fr5 is around 5MB, copied on /tmp.
