[PD] Installing externals on ubuntu 12.4 omap

One idea:

type "file  /usr/lib/puredata/extra/netsend~.pd_linux" and
verify that it seems to be for the right arch/OS like this:

file /usr/lib/puredata/extra/bonk~/bonk~.pd_linux 
/usr/lib/puredata/extra/bonk~/bonk~.pd_linux: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, 
ARM, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, 
BuildID[sha1]=0x28222313b3309b88df48d6ee2cbcffc31f645aeb, stripped

That would also verify the file is readable.  I don't know what else could go
wrong but of course that's how things go wrong in general - someone didn't
know how it would go wrong :)
