[PD] start pd + choose which settingsfile to load

(sorry for winded wording):

on mac os 10.14 i regularily work in both “normal” vanilla and a version compiled for double.
they both share the same settings file - no problem, if i don´t autoload some library

but now for some reason i need to put zexy into auto loaded libs for vanilla.
expectedly, this throws an error  in double:
"refusing to load 32bit-float object 'zexy' into 64bit-float Pd”
so i saved an "autoload library" free settingsfile für my double.

however, trying to launch with options as described in http://msp.ucsd.edu/Pd_documentation/x3.htm#s4
/Applications/Pd-0.51.4double.app/Contents/MacOS/Pd -prefsfile /Users/hwk/Documents/Pd/settings_pd-double.pdsettings
/Applications/Pd-0.51.4double.app/Contents/MacOS/Pd -noprefs

fail with "unknown option: -prefsfile” or "unknown option: -noprefs”.

thanks in advance for any pointers
