[PD] devel_0.38 pb loading externals?

Hi all,
that could turn out to be one of the meanest bugs in pd history.
Vincent, Ian, Ben, did you also "make install" your built pd, or just 
run it from the bin folder?
The thing is that with the preferred autoconf build method, the pd 
binary resides in the _src_ folder after compilation.
So, most probably, you linked your externals (flext-based, but also 
others) against the new version (in src), but ran it with an old one in 
bin. This produces the described error for me, too.

best greetings,
