as has been discussed in the archives:
- there are 64bit packages of Pd-vanilla available on plain Debian (and 
probably other distros) - why not use them?
- Pd has not been 64bit-able before 0.41; since Pd-extended only just 
reached 0.40, there have been no 64bit builds made available
- now that the next Pd-extended release includes a Pd that can handle 
64bit, there is still no autobuild machine available; you can help by 
sponsoring (or setting up your machine to do autobuilds)
