Thanks IOhannes,
apt-get build-dep GEM solved the problem.

Just for collective info apt-get build-dep GEM prompted for the removal of
Pd-extended in order to install updates.

I recompiled and re-installed, everything works, although on creation of
[text2d] Pd complains:
[text2d]: cannot find font-file '/usr/lib/pd-extended/extra/Gem/vera.ttf'
Then I need to manually open a font, and it works fine.

Can I set the correct path to my fonts folder?
or I had to do it beforehand...
