i do not use X.org (yet, as i am on debian (which does not come with 
X.org), and i don't see a good reason right now to switch)

anyhow, looking at the X.org-CVS i see, that there should be an 
xf86vmode.h file in extensions/
you could/should search where this file is installed onyour system, and 
probably add that to your search-path.

this is just a result of the above

is there a libXxf86vm.a somewhere ? (e.g. in /usr/X11R6/lib/)

i'll be very happy to know that gem runs under X.org ...
