[PD] another day's raspberry pi experiences

HI there,

I am trying to follow how to compile pd on the raspberry pi and I am 
stuck at the ./configure in the src folder.

The git downloaded all the files and everything seems fine up to that 
point but there is no configure file in the src folder, so I get a no 
such file or folder when I do the ./configure.

I try the ./autogen.sh but that also failed.

Any pointers would be appreciated!!
