[PD] readanysf~0.13 compile on linux ppc

the configure script doesn;t find flext, so when you compile, linking to
the flext library breaks.  same thing happens to me sometimes.  I try to
configure my /etc/ld.so.conf so that it points to my pd dir under
/usr/local/lib/pd, but I can only get flext to register for compiling if I
install it under /usr/local/lib

try puting the flext.so's under /usr/local/lib and compiling.
that should work.

I would love to solve this issue though.    also don't know the real fix.
could certainly by that my configure script is wrong, but I can't see
where.  maybe there is some issue with the flext library on linux.
