the [gemdefaultwindow] is an internal of Gem itself. consider it as a 
(somewhat clumsy) way to configure the window backend for Gem (similar 
to the audio dialog for you soundcard setup).

when sharing patches, you should not include Gem with it.
instead Gem should be pre-installed on the system (and be configured to 
"work correctly").

if you follow this path, Gem can be upgraded independently (e.g. once 
the window mess has been solved on macOS), and everybody will be happy.
