It works for me after loading the full library by creating an object in
the patch:

[declare -stdpath Gem -stdlib Gem]

I tested only square-help.pd and it displayed correctly. I didn't do
any serious Gem stuff on the Pi yet.

IIRC, you have to enable the experimental GL driver with raspbi-config
before you can do hardware accelerated openGL on the Raspberry Pi 3. 

Tested with:
 - Raspberry Pi 3
 - Raspbian Jessie
 - Pd-0.47.1 (compiled) and Pd-0.46.2 (repo)
 - Gem 0.93.3 (repo)

In order for the compiled Pd to find the repo installation of Gem, I
added a symlink /usr/local/lib/pd/extra/Gem pointing to
