You seem to be unintentionally trying to run not one command, but
three commands: 

1) /usr/local/bin/pd -rt -path
2) /usr/local/lib/pd/extra:/usr/local/lib/pd/pdp_pidip_osx/abstractions -lib
3) /usr/local/lib/pd/pdp_pidip_osx/pdp

But 2) and 3) are no commands, that's why you get an error. (Some of
these files don't even exist in your disk).

Either put all these in one line, or end the continuing lines with a
backslash or even better: 

Remove the last lines and just stay with these two: 


Then put every option you want into the .pdrc (which is supported on
your OS-X, too, so it seems). 

In the .pdrc, you should make sure, that the paths you entered also do

You could check this in a terminal with commands like (without $): 

$ ls /usr/local/lib/pd/pdp_pidip_osx/abstractions

which should give no errors if the directory, folder or file exists.

Having non existent paths in .pdrc shouldn't harm, though but they
aren't that good for the signal-to-noise ratio in the Terminal output.
