Try pure-data.sf.net 
There are packages for a lot of externals in one file.

This is actually more a topic for the pd-list, but: The Pd comunity is
huge, for such a kind of software. So it's really hard to get all
these people to agree on publishing their stuff in one single place.
As you mentioned, it's the same problem with Reactor or Max/MSP
patches/externals.
