OK - so then there must be a problem during linking I guess ... I have 
to look into it.

Yes I understand - but OTOH it is much harder do distribute a patch 
which uses sndfiler, because everyone has to compile it ;)
(which can be quite tricky - especially for non-pd experts)

I think I tried to add sndfiler to the pd-extended build system (which 
should be quite straight forward) a year ago - but did not finish 
because it has a dependecy to libsndfile - then pd-extended would need 
to distribute this library as well ...

But I agree that this is the way to go, then it should just work.
