i'm trying to make a gem package for gentoo GNU/Linux distribution.

compiling it following instructions in src/Gnu/README.build was no
problem. but on ftp there were some more packages, which i dont know
what to do with. they ain't mentioned in the README.build, but it seems
(i tried some examples) they are quite useful. to make a package i'd
rather know in what order should i build these other packages [and what
are there, where they came from etc]. i also read in the mailing list
archive about libmpeg3 dependancy, it isn't mentioned in the document

i have pd/gem installed on my debian machine and there they work
absolutelly perfect (but they are older versions also). on gentoo
machine gem generates lots of errors and sometimes "misbehaves".

reading startup file: /home/buggs/.pdrc
GEM: Mark Danks
GEM: ver: 0.84-5
GEM: compiled: Aug 11 2002
>>> here i open a patch (red square)
>>> then click on create
error: GEM: Unable to create single buffer window
error: GEM: Error creating const context
error: GEM: A serious error occured creating const Context
error: GEM: Do not continue!
GEM: window created
>>> i click 1
GEM: Start rendering
>>> everything seems to work alright
>>> then i click 0
GEM: Stop rendering
>>> and finaly destroy...
Segmentation fault
pd_gui: pd process exited
>>> hmmm.... seems it understood me literally :)

pd/gem segfaults every time i do destroy and complains about creating
single buffer window and context. i have a feeling this two are

do simptoms look familiar to anybody?
