Its actually against Debian policy to include files in a package that already exist in another package. For example, on Debian-derivs, its:

I've got mixed feelings about this. It's clearly "much preferrable" to do it this way on Linux distros, which provide these packages. 

On Mac it's a minor headache to 1. install a package manager 2. install the dependencies 3. make sure the build system can find the dependencies

On Windows: ??

OTOH, for the sake of including 3 headers in svn, everyone could just type "make", and they're done.

Anyhow, to conform to the policies and conventions of the Pd svn, I've removed the headers and added the requisite instructions to the README as suggested.
