Gem requires a number of 3rd party libraries to be present on the system.
(luckily, most of these dependencies are optional: not having them will
just disable parts of Gem's functionality - leaving the rest functional;
unfortunately font-support is mandatory, so you need
libfreetype/libftgl/... in order to use Gem at all).

pd-extended ships these libraries in the app's "lib" folder, and has
modified Gem to use these libraries (as found on a specific path
relative to the Pd binary)
since you just copied Gem around (without the requried libs), the
dependencies can no longer be found and thus Gem fails to load.

you should use a Gem that comes with the bundled libs.
one of these is the package found at http://gem.iem.at
iirc, the deken packages i uploaded also have the libraries included
(and the search path fixed to use them).
