this is normally not needed.
only pd,  pdsend and pdreceice are installed in /usr/bin
all other program(-parts) are installed in /usr/lib/pd/bin or /usr/lib64/bin

from the Makefile:
install:  all
	install -d $(DESTDIR)$(libpdbindir)
	install $(BIN_DIR)/$(GUINAME) $(DESTDIR)$(libpdbindir)/$(GUINAME)
	install $(BIN_DIR)/pd-watchdog $(DESTDIR)$(libpdbindir)/pd-watchdog
	install -m644 $(BIN_DIR)/pd.tk $(DESTDIR)$(libpdbindir)/pd.tk
	install -d $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)
	install $(BINARYMODE) $(PDEXEC) $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/pd
	install -m755 $(BIN_DIR)/pdsend $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/pdsend
	install -m755 $(BIN_DIR)/pdreceive $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/pdreceive 

prefix = /usr
exec_prefix = /usr
bindir = /usr/bin
includedir = /usr/include
libdir = /usr/lib
mandir = /usr/share/man


# varibles to match packages/Makefile.buildlayout so that they can be easily
# overridden when building Pd-extended builds. <hans at at.or.at>
libpddir = $(libdir)/pd
pddocdir = $(libpddir)/doc
libpdbindir = $(libpddir)/bin

and libdir is /usr/lib64 for 64bit systems.

try to ask upstream:

perhaps a 64bit issue.

have fun
