flow_objects.c is just a source file containing most builtin object 
classes of gridflow. you don't use it directly, you run "make" to make 
gridflow.pd_linux from that file (and from other files all together). Once 
you have successfully loaded the "gridflow" library in Pd, all builtins 
are supposed to be available. You shouldn't have any "undefined symbol" 
error, because if you do, you're sure gridflow.pd_linux is NOT loaded.

almost every gridflow patch is using "flow_objects.c". maybe I shouldn't 
have mentioned that file in the first place.

please make sure that you have gridflow loading properly at first, perhaps 
by loading examples/hello-world.pd first, to see whether anything works at 
all. There's no reason why [#labeling] wouldn't work.

Check the spelling, because I spelt [#labeling] with a single l, instead 
of the double l such as "labelling" (both exist in english).
