[PD] flext install (for another amateur)

Hey folks,

I have been trying in vain to install flext (cvs download) on my 10.6.8
snow leopard Mac. I've tried it every which way - both using the buildsys
and autoconfig - and just cannot get the bugger to build. I have refreshed
before each try with a new copy of flext via cvs.

Using autoconfig I seem to get this error during build:

flutil.cpp: In static member function ‘static void
flext_single::CopyMem(void*, const void*, int)’:
flutil.cpp:33: error: ‘BlockMoveData’ was not declared in this scope
flutil.cpp: In static member function ‘static void
flext_single::ZeroMem(void*, int)’:
flutil.cpp:44: error: ‘BlockZero’ was not declared in this scope
make[1]: *** [libflext_pd_s_a-flutil.o] Error 1
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

And using buildsys these errors:

I am pointing the variables in the txt files to the correct locations, of
that I am sure. I have also begun with a fresh install of Pd-extended
0.43.4 - could this be it? Too new-a-build? Need I use Pd vanilla to get
flext to play ball? I'd really rather not as I already have a bunch of
stuff invested in Pd-extended and I want to avoid having to compile
countless externals just to run the same projects in vanilla (though this
would be a very long-winded option).

Your helpings are highly appreciated.
