If you post your SConstruct files into subversion, I'll try to see if
I can help. Theoretically, all that needs to be asked of the user is:
- where to install to (perhaps with a default of /usr/local/lib/pd)
- where the pd source is located -- and this only if a program needs
more than m_pd.h (or if m_pd.h is not in one of the standard

I realize, of course, that this is far easier to state than to do :-).
And having to support myriad platforms only makes it harder. But I
think it's extremely worthwhile to reduce as much as possible the
number of questions asked of the user (e.g. where is sndobj.h? I
dunno, it's wherever the debian package puts it, and it's always nice
when configure scripts can find it unprompted.)
