The ../../Frameworks is so that you can compile Pd using the  
TclTkStandalone distro.  But that doesn't have headers anymore, so we  
have to come up with a different solution.

I made a patch to configure.in and makefile.in to fix the MacOS X  
compilation issues.  This patch also allows you to compile jack support  
on OSX if you have it installed.


or from CVS:

cvs checkout packages/darwin_app/patches/darwin_build-0.38.patch

To apply:

cd pd-0.38-4
patch -p0 < path/to/darwin_build-0.38.patch
