[PD] Pd -extended 0.41 on debian : missing lib

I haven't found a good way to set the various package dependencies in  
the Debian package based on which version the package is being built  
on.  The current .debs are very minimal, and definitely could use  
some work, if anyone is looking for a project :D.

Currently, the dependencies for the nightly builds are hard coded,  
and are set to support Debian/stable.  I set the Debian/testing build  
to use Tcl/Tk 8.5 so that we can start testing it with that.  Tcl/Tk  
8.5 has a number of really big improvements, like full anti-aliasing  
support on X11 and much faster graphics on Mac OS X.

Also, there are now desiredata builds running on that machine, and dd  
requires Tcl/Tk 8.5.
