I'm willing to work on the externals. I'm rather busy at the moment
but am willing to slowly work on writing makefiles for various
externals that need their own. I figure we should start with some
generic makefile that maybe tests for environment variables for the
INSTALL_PREFIX, location of m_pd.h, .. what else..? so that it could
be called from a higher up makefile with that info setup already.
