that's not what i meant.
i was referring to Pd-extended's build system (rather than the
binaries), which sometimes makes it awkward to compile an external.

i assume you got the aka.wiiremote sources via svn from

by "checkout the entire 'externals' branch" i meant, you should checkout
the entire "externals" directory:
$ svn co
