I have the old linux ViaVoice SDK kicking around.  Unfortunately, the last time I tried to compile the server version, it just wasn't compatible with any modern linux installation.  That's why I developed the pocketsphinx integration.

Just follow the installation instructions at the top of mh/code/common/

Let me know if you need help.
