[PD] extended compilation nightmares...

The source tarball has everything you need from the pure-data SVN to  
build Pd-extended.  You will need to install all of the libraries to  
get the whole thing to build.  OpenSUSE should have them all, Debian,  
Ubuntu, and Fedora do.

Please fill in this page with any info you discover.  Mostly, the  
other pages are lists of the packages to install.


To build the whole thing, you need to:

cd pure-data/packages/linux_make
make install
make package

Then you'll have the install tarball in the "build" subdir.
