[PD] Installing pd-extended in ubuntu on a computer with no internet connection

This is cheating but Debian has a web repository at
http://packages.debian.org where you can download packages for different
architectures and search, etc.  Find out what packages Pd-extended depends
on, download the ppc .deb files from the debian server, pop them on a flash
drive and drop them on your net-less ppc at home and then install them first

sudo dpkg -i whatever.deb

Then install the pd-extended deb package using the same command.

That's what I would do - but it's not very elegant and maybe someone has a
better idea.
