[PD] readanysf~ on osx 10.14

When the compiler, linker, etc print an error message, the first thing I suggest is to read it and try to figure out what it *might* mean, regardless of whether you know all the details or not. :)

You were able to build it, great. It looks like Pd was able to find and try loading it, but loading failed, ok.

If I can translate, I believe this is saying "hey, I loaded the external but the library it's using (libgavl) refers to a function I don't know about (clock_nanosleep). A quick Google search shows this is probably due to the library trying to use a Linux API function that is not available in the Windows API and not provided by Mingw:

Did you build libgavl yourself? If so, you might have missing a compiler define which probably bypasses calling that function on Windows. If not, the the library needs to fixed which is beyond the readanysf~ source files.
