i like this idea too. what about darwinports? btw. both of this  
package management systems do have a mechanism to place .app packages  
into /Applications. this option might be of interest too. i don't  
know the internals neither of .deb nor of ports and i don't have time  
to dive into it now - just started with my studies.
for packaging an extended/++ self containing pd version this approach  
might be of interest too. just think about this possible scenario:
1. install pd + externals via package management (fink/darwinports)
2. run a script which grasps all the abstractions and .pd_darwins +  
3. run a script which grasps all the needed dylib's from the  
distribution (using "otool -L")
4. put the stuff into the right place into Pd.app

this mechanism could be extended to provide a way to easily deploy  
custom Pd.app which just include needed externals and possibly have  
patches autostarted.

@hans+james. this is no rant against you and i don't want to just  
create another build system. i'm just thinking about how pd on mac  
could be more conveniant for (doubleclick)users AND (cli)developers :)
