the problem was some missing defines in the main.cpp.  if you download it
again, you should be able to compile without the mad, vorbis or flac libs.

good to hear.

I think the later is the way to go.  If you compile all the libs
statically, then the binary will be well over 2 or 3 megs (I'm guessing).
And, you'd have to load that every time you add a readanysf~ object in pd.
that will add up after a while.   Same with flext externals.  they should
link to flext dynamically where possible.  this will cut down down on RAM
