This requires XCode (aka developer tools, included on your OSX install discs)
I find a combination of .pdrc and the plist to be best, as that way I
don't have to merge my particular customizations into every new build
of PD-extended I download (which I do... rather compulsively : )).

To use .pdrc you'll need a plaintext editor (textedit will do, though
I'm not sure if it will let you save something as a "dot file" – I use
textmate).  Enter your startup flags in the file, one per line.

Mm, so many choices.
