ahhh, not really, I guess. In my previous mail I had already said how I  
compiled pd-ext using both tcl/tk 8.4 and 8.5, and both gave the same  
result. and if I didn't have tcl/tk 8.4, how would have it compiled pd-ext  
in the first place? the error appears when I try to run pd, not when I  
compile it.
