what it means (i guess) is that it "works with older binaries of
external libraries".
for a long time, Pd on OSX was only available as 32bit builds.
so all the pre-built libraries were also only available as 32bit libraries.
all (most) of these libraries could be built for 64bit just as well, but
if you already have a 32bit binary of a given library, you just cannot
use it with a 64bit Pd.
