use "apt" (or whatever package manager comes with your distribution) for
everything you can.
it is simply better.

yes. that's expected.
apt *guarantees* that the (apt-)installed version of Gem will work with
the (apt-)installed version of Pd.
this is something that deken simply cannot do.
for instance, try installing ofelia on a recent version of Debian or
Ubuntu via deken.
most externals are trivial (no external libraries; using only C with its
well defined ABI).
some are not, e.g. Gem (a largish number of external libraries; written
in C++, which has a not-so-stable and well-defined ABI).
for those complex externals, deken is just not good enough.
