I don't use IBMTTS here but I do notice obvious differences between
gnome-speech and the speech-dispatcher module with espeak as the
synthesizer.  From my point of view, when I use gnome-speech with
espeak and orca, punctuation control works much like speechd-up and
speakup.  When I use speech-dispatcher and espeak with orca, I lack
much punctuation control.  I understood from the orca-list that the
speech-dispatcher module from orca is not well maintained and there
were some philosofical differences on how punctuation should be
controled.  My head started spinning with all the past discussion on
this from before on the orca list.  Personally, I like how punctuation
is handled with speakup and gnome-speech.
