Not entirely, for Pd-extended, you'll want to check out the branch:

svn co https://pure-data.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pure-data/branches/pd-extended/0.41

There was just a message about this.  Basically  the difference is  
between which core Pd is used, Pd-extended or Pd-vanilla.  Pd-extended  
has a lot of changes/patches to the core as well as a lot of libraries.

First setup your machine with the packages you need:


Then do this:

   svn co https://pure-data.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pure-data/branches/pd-extended/0.41
   cd 0.41/packages/linux_make
   make install
   make package

Then you'll have a .deb to install.  Also, search puredata.info for  
"64 bit", there are some specific wiki pages about that topic.
