Argh, I didn't check earlier versions - I just cribbed from [tabread] in 

It should now detect (at compile time) which Pd version is used, and use 
the appropriate array API.  Note that the old API is not 64-bit safe, so 
if you experience weird array issues with pdlua compiled against older 
Pd versions, it's not my fault, and you should upgrade first Pd then 
recompile pdlua against the new Pd.

I haven't tested this code thoroughly, I'm happy with my 0.41-4 install, 
let me know if you use older Pd versions and have trouble compiling.

There's also a return of Makefile.static, an alternative to the 
incomplete autoconf system.  I think I'll abandon the autoconf system, 
as it's too painful (what with Lua having 10 different names on 10 
different systems...).
