...well, I still use a .pdrc on osx, too, because the Tk dialog is  
still early in it's implementation...at least for me, there aren't  
enough entry boxes for all my paths and extensions, but this'll get  
fixed in time...

...sure:  all you have to remember is that an *.app is just a series  
of directories...the important binary is always in the directory  
"Pd.app/Contents/MacOS/"...and then make sure it's "pd" or "Pd"...so,  
try "./Pd-0.38-4-extended-RC1.app/Contents/MacOS/Pd"...
