I compiled pd from source on my 64-bit system (f10, planet-ccrma), and
it works quite well:
[slinaber at audio ~]$ pd -version
Pd version 0.42-4
compiled 13:36:31 Feb 11 2009

IIRC I had to check it out from the repo to get a version that would
compile, but check the docs at http://puredata.info

Good luck,
