I would like to avoid that cicero appears in the list of synthesizers,
when no line beginning with #AddModule in /etc/speech-dispatcher/ is
uncommented. Currently cicero appears then in the output of spd-say -O
as well as in the Person drop-down list of orca, even if cicero is not
installed and the configuration file /etc/speech-dispatcher/cicero.conf
is removed.

The indeed result is that people cicero doesn't appear in the
list of available synths if it is not available.

I understand that in most cases at least one #AddModule line will be
uncommented, but this is not the default. 

Maybe a general solution would be to allow listing a module, found in an
#AddModule line if and only if both following conditions are met:
1) The config file does exist
2) A needed binary is present, checked as you did in commit e3ff991:
"generic modules: check for actual availability of binaries"
but extending this check to all modules.

OK, let's keep it then.
