I tried out Pd-0.41-0. Hans tried Pd-extended. Pd-0.41-0 is build by  
Miller. Pd-extended is build by Hans. While it's still on the same  
operation system, it's not the same build system.  I think the  
differentness is in how the GUI and the core of Pd are tied to each  

I still haven't worked out how Miller builds on Mac OS X, i.e. makes  
a so called "app bundle". It's not a matter of just running './ 
configure & make & make install' since the install makefile target  
doesn't make a app bundle. - In fact that operation is nowhere  
mentioned in the Makefile that ships with the src.

I'm not saying this to just cough up shit. But to say that the way Pd- 
extended is build for Mac OS X might be more in the Mac way of doing  
things. That is that running /path/to/some.app/Contents/MacOS/ 
executable might even be the default or standard way of launching an  
application (on Mac OS X). But again i'm no Mac witch.
