Yeah, I had that same problem with fink, but now I can't remember how I  
got gsl-shlibs to install.  I think you have to set fink to update from  
the CVS (I think "fink selfupdate-cvs" will do it).  That package is  
definitely installed on my computer:

root at sla:~>dpkg -l 'gsl*'
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err:  
||/ Name             Version          Description
ii  gsl              1.3-1            Routines for numerical computing
ii  gsl-shlibs       1.3-1            Routines for numerical computing

But if you just want to get Pd running without PDP, you can remove  
"-lib pdp" from the .pdrc and it will start without gsl-shlibs.  Only  
PDP needs that lib.
