[Freeswitch-dev] Installing FreeSWITCH sounds on NetBSD

The files we get from GMVoices are slightly "loud" for some folks, so we
run them through sox with the -v 0.2 arg and it "normalizes" them a bit.
However, I wouldn't do that same trick again on the sounds files in
files.freeswitch.org since they've already been normalized. If you do then
you'd definitely be lowering the volume to what many would consider to be a
really low level.
