I had something like that in mind, but the Pd compiled from source didn't
create a /usr/local/lib/pd directory. Everything is lying in it's own
directory (in this case /home/pi/applications/pd-0.46-4/ ).
Should I create the /usr/local/lib directory?
Forgot to mention that I haven't installed Pd with apt-get, so there's no
/usr/lib/pd either..
