  sorry for that but it is not clear to me...

I'm using deken for installing externals but encountering issues with 
help browser when I enable those externals with preference window, it's 
actually in another thread.

  If I understand, I shouldn't add those deken externals in path 
preferences, but add a [delare -path ~/pd-externals/my_deken_external] 
object to all the main patches that uses externals installed into 
~/pd-externals, and then path preferences is about externals installed 

By this way the console doesn't complain anymore about duplicates when I 
open help browser without hacking tcl code,

but I'm a bit lost lost now about how to proceed with all my old patches...
