seems like you didn't load Gem.

you shouldn't allow deken to automatically add search-paths.
the entire functionality was an ugly hack for Pd<0.49.

you shouldn't need that with Gem.

what you do need to do is *load* Gem.
creating an object [declare -lib Gem] should do that trick for you.
this will also add the Gem-path to the search-paths of Pd, in order to
find all those nifty objects like [gemwin].
(if it doesn't that is a bug; but i doubt it is)
