This is because video4linux v1 has been dumped from recent kernels and
this Gem is so old. I finally found how I did.

In Pd-0.42.5-extended/packages/Makefile, I add --without-libv4l1 to the
Gem compile options:

 # gem_install
         cd $(gem_src)/src && ./autogen.sh

 $(gem_src)/src/Gem.dll: $(gem_src)/src/configure

 $(gem_src)/src/Gem.pd_linux: $(gem_src)/src/configure
         cd $(gem_src)/src && ./configure \
                 --with-pd=$(pd_src) --without-libv4l1  # <--- here
         $(MAKE) -C $(gem_src)/src

And don't forget to "make clean" before recompiling !
