[a general purpose tip: to find which files are included in a package do
"rpm -q -l package_name", in your case "rpm -q -l pd"]

The Pd package does not include the full source for pd, only an include
file that I seem to remember is the only thing needed to build
additional externals. 

If you want to see the full source (with any additional patches I might
have added) you have to get the matching .src.rpm from:

Then do (as root) an "rpm -Uvh name_of_src_rpm", then:
  cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
  rpmbuild -bp name_of_package.spec
(that means, "do the prep but do not not actually build the package")

and the fully patched, ready to build source tree should be here:

Or, of course, you could go to the pd page and download the original
source code.
