thanks for your help so far frank, it looks as though i am attempting a
different workaround...

i'm going to take the shell.pd_linux (and the other goodies from the extra in
pd-externals/puredata apt-get) and drop them into a custom install.  rude and
crude and but it should work.  i'll mv the appropriate docs too.  hopefully
thats it.  it turns out i used /usr/local/lib for my installs and apt uses
usr/lib/ for its pd so trampling should be avoided.

if it doesn't work i'll just wait till next week when i get a new machine to
work on and use gentoo where compiling is still fashionable ;)

although the .deb seems like a great idea; i mean it installs with jack and has
both oss and alsa support plus all those externs and gem in just a few seconds.

quite a beautiful experience.  too bad it didnt work though.  (i'll submit the
report through bugreport if i can't figure out why)  seems deb pd doesnt want
to open any windows; gives me watchdogs on root w/-rt flag; and when launched
says "Pd: system call timed out".  actually its totally dysfunctional right
now.  but i'll try again later, maybe reboot or some trick might do it.  

thanks again for your suggestions frank, i'll get it going soon, and will try to
use the fakeroot debian/thing too

oh and all the best in graz pd developers, thanks for pd it roxxxx
