Gem and MPEG and all that

Hi kids,

  a silly question I am sure, and already touched upon
by the illustrious Ivica Bukvic, whose guide to getting
Gem up and running is wonderful.

Ivica reported the same problem, after successfully compiling
Gem.pd_linux (not a test or experimental version to the best
of my knowledge), running 
pd -nomidi -nosound -lib Gem
spits out the following:

/home/tim/software/gem-0.84/Gem.pd_linux: undefined symbol:
Gem: can't load library

now, getting under the bonnet we find similar
symbols in the Gem.pd_linux file. there are 
various symbols like OpenMPEG in the libmpeg.a
file, nothing like this ugliness with underscores
and all that....

being a nonexpert (mea culpa!) I was wondering
whether anybody could help me through this...

Note, this is a 0.84 problem, things seem fine with 0.83 inasmuch
as the basics work, but pix_image and other stuff fails
tragically, so I would like to try out 0.84 to see if it is much
