thanks for the bug-report.
with the (off-list) help of joseph i was able to track down the source 
of this problem, and it is indeed a bug in Pd's CPU detection code.

i've opened a ticket <https://bugs.puredata.info/2190>

there are a couple of workarounds:
1. if you are just having problems with finding externals in deken, you 
can do as joseph suggested and change the platform specifyer to 
"Linux-arm64-32" in the deken preferences
2. a more permanent (and future proof) fix requires recompilation: just 
add "--with-deken-cpu=arm64" to the configure flags (obviously you 
should *only* do this for creating a binary for the arm64 platform)

a *proper* fix has been submitted to Pd's "develop" branch (sowill 
appear in the next Pd release).

i'll update the Debian packages soon (hopefully tomorrow)
