This is x86.  Unfortunately, both Debian/powerpc machines that I have  
died (the G3 in the build farm, and my old G4 laptop).

Yes, it should go into /usr.  This is a quick hack.  It installs  
into /usr/local to prevent clashes with the puredata package.   
Perhaps it should instead install into /usr and then uninstall  
"puredata" upon installation (aka "Conflicts:").

Do you have the file to install that sets up these file  
associations?  Perhaps you could post it?
