[Slackbuilds-users] Unable to run Pure Data

I successfully compiled and installed Pure Data (pd package) on my
Slackware64 14.1 system, but when I try to run the program I get the
following errors:

  aurelio at mem:~$ pd
  disabling real-time priority due to missing pd-watchdog (/usr/bin/pd-watchdog)
  Error in startup script: couldn't read file "/usr/tcl//pd-gui.tcl": no such file or directory

Both pd-watchdog and pd-gui.tcl have been installed under /usr/lib64/pd:

  aurelio at mem:~$ ls -l /usr/lib64/pd/bin/pd-watchdog 
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5512 dic 15 12:06 /usr/lib64/pd/bin/pd-watchdog*

  aurelio at mem:~$ ls -l /usr/lib64/pd/tcl/pd-gui.tcl 
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 28192 dic 15 12:06 /usr/lib64/pd/tcl/pd-gui.tcl*

Previous versions of the package used a patch file
(makefile.in.DESTDIR.diff) to fix the installation directory of a few
files: maybe something similar should be used also for the latest
