[PD] Building Pd-extended 64 bit OS X

Wow, you are an intrepid Pd user, wanting to get into the hard build  
problems.  I haven't even made a build on 64-bit/10.6 yet.  Here are  
some things off the top of my head:

- Gem won't build on 10.6/64-bit since some of the Carbon APIs are not  
64-bit.  In packages/Makefile, you'll need to remove 'gem' from the  
line that starts with 'all:' and "gem_install" from the line that  
starts with "extended_install".

- you don't need all the stuff from Fink if you don't care about  
having all of the libraries.  I'd just try running a build and seeing  
where it dies.  Then in externals/Makefile, remove that library from  
the TARGETS line.
