That did the trick!
The script itself didn't succeed at the first run but the third run
completed clean.
And it deletes the file at the end so I needed to copy it before it
finished :o)

Planet CCRMA does have lame, but the OBS doesn't have Planet CCRMA.
It is possible to fetch and build the lame sources into with pd but then we
would have the lame binary bundled into pd which is not something we want,
do we?
So my best idea right now is to disable the external(s) that use lame.

Well... I'm actually enjoying RPM packaging, it's a nice compact thing with
everything controlled from a single spec file, and at the moment the
simpler way for me is to try to get pd-extended build, and to get into the
Library Template, which I'm completely unfamiliar with, at a later point.
The problems which I'm having are with some individual externals, but this
way when I solve one, the next one comes up, so it's easy to go through all
of them. At least I hope so.
I'd even say: let me finish packaging 0.42.5-extended as a monolith now
(according to the original topic), and let's do 0.43 with the Library
Template approach later. Is that OK?

Again, I'm focusing more on the RPM side and I'd by happy if I could feed a
debian-ready source tar.gz to the OBS, and I'd provide only the dsc. The
less cool way is to upload a static file (like the one generated by
pd-extended-source-tarball.sh), the more cool way would be to link to one
which is online somewhere. Is there one?
