the new version of colorgrid doesn't need anymore
to bundle the image (colorgrid.pnm) file in the package,
but it introduces a new dependency to the tk-img library,
and i don't know of the availability of this library
on every platform,
for now i'm sure it's not listed in pd's dependencies...
not sure it's the way to go.

second, when you build pidip from source,
it defines the path to that image as :
#define COLORGRID_IMG PWD"/patches/images/colorgrid.pnm"
that insure a compiled PIDIP will find the image..

when it's build in extended, i don't know which path should be given here,
as i don't know of a standard path for shared files in pd-extended,
well, basically the simplest thing is to put the right path here in SVN,
and pidip will keep its way of compiling it.
