before i do something stupid.  i have noticed that portaudio etc. . actually
resides in a folder labeled internals inside the Pd folder : the original
is in usr/local/Pd.  but, the trouble is not finding the pdrc file . right ?

so, any glaring problems come to the surface?  by starting from scratch
i assume you mean just a new pdrc file.

also,  if this helps. . . if i try running 0.37 [which is what i was trying
in the first place] i get :

reading startup file: /Users/1001/.pdrc
DigiCoreAudioDriver> Found 21 entries in 'SupportedApps.txt'.
using default input device number: 0
using default output device number: 3
nchan 2, flags 3, bufs 8, framesperbuf 256
pd_gui: pd process exited
/Applications/Pd.command: line 2:  1090 Segmentation fault
/usr/local/pd/bin/pd -rt

thanks again for helping,
