Thanks for having a look.
One thing I like to mention: The upstream sources come with a Makefile
based on a apparently old Makefile template for libdirs. It was pretty
broken and created superfluous directories in debian/. I copied over the
current template, adapted it and applied it as a quilt patch. Is that
the proper way to do it?

wondering about the strip stuff:

 strip --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note --strip-
unneeded \

My guess is that this is needed in order to properly strip
the .pd_linux so binaries?

Yeah, dh_strip apparently does not consider .pd_linux files as shared
objects and also there is no way to force it by passing it file names as

I used the strip command from a mail by Felipe Sateler [1]



I was under the impression that dh would set the strip options in the $ (INSTALL_PROGRAM) for the Makefile, so that an explicit strip wasn't necessary. Is that true? If so, I'll change up the pd packages to use INSTALL_PROGRAM and INSTALL_DATA properly. I don't know why I didn't do this to begin with.
