the Makefiles in the pd CVS tree are very are definetly not good.
they needs fixing globaly.

who is responsible for the CVS ?

i think that all of them have to be generalised ,so we can easiely build

i do everything manually on my system,
cause quite a few makefiles try to use -m32 in CFLAGS and many of them
need -fPIC to be added.

there basic externals , which don't have any ./configure part, i think
we need to work on those first , leaving Gem and DataFlow aside ..

also there is acouple of external which have duplicated objects.

i'm not totaly experienced with writing from the scratch makefiles, but
i could help checking it out on amd64 (gentoo)..

and hopefully mac-ppc (obsd) soon as well.
