LN_S is an alias for ln -s. It could be ln -sf.

With ln -s, when rebuilding pd-extended, you are forced to make clean before, so everything is rebuilt.
With ln -sf, an existing symlink does not cause the build to fail.

Note some externals (zexy for example) hardcode ln -s instead of @LN_S@.

Thank you,
Charles
