As you have seen in the bug tracker it has not been resolved yet.

That email you point to is just some test builds to see if the  
disfunction of delread/write had to do with the mentioned compile  
flags. I don't actually have those test builds anymore and they  
didn't contain any externals. And also the GUI wasn't as slick as  
those build by Hans C. Steiner. Properly since i used the Tcl/Tk that  
ships with OS X.

One thing you could try is to build it your self. There is a wiki [1]  
about it, but it is not fully up to date. And to be quite frank I'm  
not sure it makes sense to build Pd-extended one self as the releases  
are made for all platforms. Well right now it might.

Another thing you could do, and is what i currently do while testing  
the nightly builds and report to the bug tracker, is to get the  
Miller version, version 0.40-2, pre-build of his website [2]. If you  
use externals you could snap them out of the Pd-extended or build  
them you self.

I hope this helps just a bit.
