You would need to get the source code of PD, replace these two files, and then 
compile PD to make a new executable. This means, for one thing, you need a C 
compiler. I'm not familiar enough with OSX to give you better directions from 
this, so hopefully someone else on this list can help you.

I'm afraid that I'm not going to be of much help here, except to say that if 
you are receiving something through the midirealtimein object, perhaps what's 
coming out as zeros are your MIDI clocks. If so, then maybe you have no 
problem and can use these messages to do your synching. 

One complication would be if your synth is sending realtime messages other 
than MIDI clocks. 

Sorry I can't be of more help.
