Did that and got this at the end:
/usr/bin/install: omitting directory `./doc/7.stuff/soundfile-tools'
/usr/bin/install: omitting directory `./doc/7.stuff/synth'
/usr/bin/install: omitting directory `./doc/7.stuff/tools'
Makefile:795: recipe for target 'install-nobase_dist_libpdDATA' failed
make[3]: *** [install-nobase_dist_libpdDATA] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory '/home/pi/applications/pd-0.46-4'
Makefile:1178: recipe for target 'install-am' failed
make[2]: *** [install-am] Error 2

make: *** [install] Error 2

/usr/local/bin/pd now exists, as well as  /usr/local/lib/pd, but there were
some stuff missing from the latter. doc/7.stuff/ had only the synth/
directory (I copied all the missing stuff from
/home/pi/applications/pd-0.46-4/doc/7/stuff) and 4.data.structures/ was
missing altogether. Also bin/ had only pd and pd-watchdog, but no pdsend
and pdreceive (also copied from /home/pi/applications/pd-0.46-4/bin).

Pd launches, but doesn't really work. I get this message in Pd's console
when it starts :API 1 not supported, reverting to 2 (OSS)
and opening testtone.pd, results in these messages:
/dev/dsp (read/write): No such file or directory
(now will try write-only...)
/dev/dsp (writeonly): No such file or directory
/dev/dsp (readonly): No such file or directory
audio I/O stuck... closing audio

and the audio won't work...

Still, if I launch Pd from /home/pi/applications/pd-0.46-4/bin/pd
everything works fine, except that it crashes with some externals I tried
to use..
