I'll answer my own question -
in file pd.tk, at the end of the "main window set up" section, after lines

wm title . "Pd"
. configure -menu .mbar -width 200 -height 150

add the following line to control main window position at startup:

wm geometry . +x+y

where (x,y) is the offset in pixels from the top left corner of the
screen. So "wm geometry . +0+0" puts the pd main window in the top
left corner of the leftmost screen.
