next, two small, weird-ish packages: puredata-import and pd-libdir

Ok, I figure while we are on a roll, I'll feed in a few more from my
backlog.  The ones so far are just standard Pd libraries, so pretty
straightforward.  These two, puredata-import and pd-libdir, are things
to support libraries, so they are not big, but more complicated to
package.  Also, the lack of puredata-dev makes it a bit more complicated
(its in collab-maint/puredata.git awaiting attention from the
Maintainer).  These two are quite important so I wanted to get them in
now, then when/if puredata-dev arrives, I'll amend them appropriately.

You'll notice that these two packages include two headers as a patch.
That's what should be in puredata-dev, but are not yet.  We also just
streamlined the installation of headers upstream in 0.43, that's why
these depend on puredata (<< 0.43).

There is also the naming of pd-import vs puredata-import.  Basically,
there are multiple forks of Pd, 'puredata' represents the original.  I
hope to package 'pdanywhere' and 'pdextended' soon. That's the origin of
the "Provides: pd", these packages will all provide 'pd'.
puredata-import is not called pd-import because its meant for only
'puredata', not 'pdextended' for example.  'pdextended' has the import
object built-in, so 'pdextended' will "Provides: pd-import".

Also, libdir-1.9.tar.gz and import-1.3.tar.gz were recently uploaded to
sourceforge, so they are not showing up for me yet with a "uscan --dehs
