Actually, the complete headers need to be there.   
externals/build/include is mostly there for building the debian  
package.  All of the source code for building the externals package  
needs to be included within the 'externals' directory in order for the  
Debian auto-builders to build properly.

The other option would be to make a debian source package for Pd, then  
we could get rid of externals/build/include.

I updated the headers with the files from pd-0.38-4 and added a README  
since you aren't the first to make this mistake.  (I made this mistake  
too, I should have written the README then... oh well... ).

Also, I changed the INCLUDES in linux/makefile, win/makefile, and  
darwin/makefile so that it'll look for the headers in the pd source  
(according to the standard CVS dev layout) before looking in  

 From this:
INCLUDES = -I. -I.. -I../include

to this:
INCLUDES = -I. -I.. -I../../../pd/src -I../include

Now that he can realize them, he must either change them, or perish.
