A simple apt=get install worked like a charm, no need to tweek anything, I got the sound working right away. The method proposed by TedbOt recently doesn't seem to be necessary anymore. I'll try pd=extended sometime soon.

did you get audio via the audio connector or via HDMI?
I compiled pd-extended from a daily snapshot on Raspbian and it works nicely via HDMI but the audio from the dedicated socket has glitches.
Performance is so-so, a modified bpq2 example works nicely (added noise and a LFO to modulate the filter's frequency), 
but freeverb for instance nailed the cpu at 100% and left only smallest chunks of sound for the ear.
GEM only works with an external xserver (like the X11 I have on my Mac) since RPi doesn't come with GLX. 
I could upload my package (where?) if you want, BTW - compile takes some hours and clogs the entire machine.
