Which one ? pdx gives nothing :).

did you build pd-extended with makepkg ?

Fast track:

* add archlinuxfr in your pacman.conf :

SigLevel = PackageOptional
Server = http://repo.archlinux.fr/$arch

* then install yaourt :
pacman -S yaourt

* then get pd-extended source from AUR, build and install :
yaourt -S pd-extended

Note: if you want, you can separatare the download and build parts.

yaourt -G pd-extended
cd pd-extended
pacman -U pd-extended-version.tar.xz

I think you're trying to install the source, not the built package.
rtfm :)

Enjoy archlinux !
