[PD] tk version weirdness with 0.43test2

and another one: I have both tk8.4 (the default on Squeeze) and tk8.5
installed, -deve packages come from 8.5 only: 

robbi:~# dlocate -l tk8
||/ Name             Version          Description
ii  tk8.4            8.4.19-4         Tk toolkit for Tcl and X11, v8.4 -
ii  tk8.5            8.5.8-1          Tk toolkit for Tcl and X11, v8.5 -
ii  tk8.5-dev        8.5.8-1          Tk toolkit for Tcl and X11, v8.5 -

configure seems to find 8.5 just fine: 
# config.log:
LIBS='-ltk8.5 -ltcl8.5  -lrt -ljack -ljack'

However running pd from the "bin" directory, the applications shows me its
ugly, non-aliased 8.4 face.

If I remove the tk8.4 package with aptitude, Pd starts with its nice and shiny
8.5-face, but that's not an option in the long run, as other packages need 8.4.

Pd 0.42 would happily use 8.5 even with 8.4 installed. Can I hack 0.43 somehow to get
the nice GUI I've grown to like a bit by now?

(I tried something like "package require Tk 8.5"  in pd-gui.tcl already, but
that won't start at all.)
