mm, linux on ppc, yes i'm afraid you have to compile all.
when you compile externals, you need to indicate
the pd headers path to the makefile,
unfortunately, you have to do it by hand.

look the Makefile
and change :
LINUXINCLUDE = -I../../src

( change ../../src to the location of your pd sources. )
