[PD] a bunch of old libraries as ubuntu packages

As part of the process of turning Pd-extended into something that  
could be included in Debian, I've made a bunch of Debian/Ubuntu  
packages from some of the older, unchanged libraries that are in SVN  
and included in Pd-extended.  I used Launchpad to build them for  
Lucid, but you should be able to just still that PPA into a Karmic  
machine to use it there.


Otherwise, its easy to build the packages on your own machine since  
they use the new template Makefile and debian packaging.  So for  
Debian or Ubuntu packages, you'd do:

cd pure-data/externals/smlib
debuild -uc -us

Then you'll have a pd-smlib-.deb package in pure-data/externals.



If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself  
of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
