i think this is not the problem.
that problem seems to be rather, that the Make-process explicitely asks 
for a 32bit build (with the "-m32" flag).

re-reading your post, i noticed that you actually are trying to build a 
0.40 version on a 64bit machine; unless you do not intend to use tables, 
you will be very unhappy with this.

the biggest change from Pd-0.40 to 0.41 was, that it became fully 
useable with 64bit machines (i remember well my red fac, when i 
presented Pd on a local radio-station and eventually played 
H05.filter.floyd.pd which just didn't work :-()

i think you should probably try to get the current svn pd-extended to 
run (good luck)
