Hmmm, i didn't spend brain-time on that. I simply put the flext source where
i develop my externals (i.e. /home/thomas/prog/pd/flext), and the lib in
some subfolder of that .....this is surely no portable behavior....
/usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib is just fine. Be aware that the
flext.a may not be upwards compatible for the next few "releases".
I'll fix the path stuff for the upcoming next release (featuring
list/anything for all inlets)
