while you certainly have your own reasons to self-compile Pd, I just
wanted to point out that Bionic Beaver already comes with Pure Data 0.48-1.

if you are talking about Tk: not very strange, i think.

(i find it more strange that your Ubuntu doesn't come with puredata
installed by default; how could *anybody* live without Pd?)

Tcl is a general purpose scripting language.
Tk is a toolkit (clever abbreviation) to build GUIs.

Tk is mostly used by Tcl, but there are bindings to other languages as
well (Perl/Tk, Tkinter (python),...)
