you only get a number of warnings (actually afaict, you only get two
warnings but they keep being retriggered)

is this a problem?

autotools will - by design - create all (final) output files (like
binaries, or libraries) in *their* source directory (or below).

this is by design: historically Pd has never auto-detected jack, you
always had to manually use "--enable-jack".

well yes, the build-system is really optimized to create "installed"
if you do not want to run "make install" (nor "make install
DESTDIR=/home/pd/0.45.5"), you could do a quick symlink hack, so Pd can
find everything:
$ cd src
$ ln -s ../tcl/ .
$ ln -s ../src/ .

in any case, since mint is based on ubuntu, which is based on debian,
you should have fairly recent Pd-packages anyhow:
Debian (testing) currently ships 0.45-4 (this reminds me, that i should
update the debian package).

if your distro ships an older version you can do:
$ dget
$ cd puredata-0.45.4/
$ sudo aptitude install devscripts
$ sudo mk-build-deps -i -r debian/control
$ dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

this will create the puredata package(s) using the autotools method.
you can then install it using:
$ sudo dpkg -i ../puredata*_0.45.4-2_*.deb
