2 questions:

1. Why are you compiling gem separately when pd-l2ork compiles it for you
and includes it with its binary package?

2. Why are you trying to use pd-vanilla includes with pd-l2ork (unless you
are using pd instead of pd-l2ork)? The two are not compatible and as I
indicated on the site with a huge warning box mixing the two will cause
crashes and unexpected behavior.
