exactly.. actually it should be [declare]d already (i checked and it is
in _chat.pd). 
probably you could check, if it is working, by creating a subpatch
somewhere in the _chat.pd patch and then trying to create [netpd-r] (or
any other abstractions from netpd/includes). if it fails, then for some
reason [declare -path] doesn't work on your version of pd-extended. a
recent build most likely already has fixed the issue. i haven't kept
track of what works in which version, but i think, with the coming
release of 0.40-extended many things should be solved.
