all those "v0.0.extended" libraries you see have been pulled from the
last release of Pd-extended.
so that has already been taken care of

*this* one will work on Linux/amd64, so yes: it is supposed to "work
with Pd-0.50.0 64bit" (on Linx obviously).

the macOS list is:

this will work on macOS/i686 and macOS/PPC, both of which were 32bit
architectures. so no dice for "Pd-0.50.0 64bit"

given that nobody has worked on [hid] for...ages, i'm pretty sure that
this is the latest version.

to achieve what?

if you are only interested in Linux, then you can do "apt install pd-hid".
if you meant "Darwin" instead of Linux, then yes, it's worth a try.
it's also quite possible that you can no longer compile it on modern macOS.
