additionally, i was also able to use it with Pd-extended 

however, i have not installed Pd-extended "properly", as it conflicts 
with my locally installed Pd, which i have no intention to lose.

this is how i did it:

1. "install" Pd-extended
% mkdir /tmp/zmoelnig/pde/
% dpkg -x Pd-0.40.3-extended-20080503-debian-testing-i386.deb 

2. start the proxy
% cd ~/peerdata
% /tmp/zmoelnig/pde/usr/local/bin/pd -nosound -nomidi -stderr -path 
i686/:lib:. -lib zexy  -open _PROXY.pd

3. start the dsp
% cd /tmp/zmoelnig/pde/usr/local/lib/pd
% ../../bin/pd -guiport 5500

4. start the gui
% cd /tmp/zmoelnig/pde/usr/local/lib/pd
% ./bin/pd-gui 5600

voila, everything seems to work (i can even open the "test audio and 
midi" patch)

admittedly it is a bit arkward :-)
anyhow, i hope this helps.
