if you override readsf~ with proper values it will actually work rigth on amd64. im afraid to try using tables, since i know theyre messed up...but the easiest way to override header mangling is proably to use InfoAudio, ive some patches that do this:

    InfoAudio (ftp://ftp.tsp.ece.mcgill.ca/TSP/AFsp/)
    wget -r -l1 http://whats-your.name/pd/gui/pool/dl/ (also /pd/extra/shell/ unless you can tell me why the shell in cvs is broken)

    open wavi.pd, adjust the path if necessary and click the bang. with 15.75 GB of wav files and SATA drive, will scan for ~90 seconds and create pool .dat ~10 mb...

    open w.pd, click 'tree', or type words in the search box.

    when setup it will look something like this: http://whats-your.name/pd/gui/pool/img.PNG (it runs on linux too)
