ah i think you are experiencing the joys of pd-extended.
the solution is simple: just checkout the entire "externals" branch and
redo what you have done.

there are certainly simpler ways, e.g. copy an existing Makefile for
multi-source libraries (e.g. one of tm's iemlib libraries) and adapt it
to your needs.
