Pd goes to some length to stay binary compatible, so you can use the
"pd-*" packages without a problem.

the main obstacle will be the search path: your self-compiled Pd will
most likely search the libraries in /usr/local/lib/pd/extra whereas the
pd-* packages install to /usr/lib/pd/extra/

simply adding /usr/lib/pd/extra to your search path should fix that.
