did you get the release-sources?
get the CVS-HEAD instead (a lot of bugfixes, esp. with the build-system 
- in theory you should even be able to build a debian-package with this 
command: "cd gem-CVS/; dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot"

you need libxxf86vm-dev installed

Gem's configure checks for the existance of this package, but does not 
refuse to compile if it is missing; this is due to the fact, that with 
earlier versions of X (probably just with XFreee86, but i cannot 
remember exactly - ask a packager) libxxf86vm-dev was part of Xlibs-dev 
(so it was there anyhow)

as for the vorbis_info_clear error i would file a bugreport at ubuntu 
(that's the drawback when you (like the ubuntu-team) take packages from 
debian's unstable branch and just release it without further research)
