As I understand it, "-libdir X" is a kind of shortcut for "-path X
-helppath X", so you could use these instead. Just put the
directory(ies) containing sfv~ and aenv~ into you path like usual and
all should be fine. Alternatively you could change your patches and
include the directory the externals reside in the object name like
[DIR_OF_SFV/sfv~]. Note that I don't know the actual paths used in
pd-extended, so you need to find out the "DIR_OF_SFV" part yourself. 
Probably this is documented better on some page on puredata.info
