[Gridflow-dev] GEM support in GridFlow

the GEM support in GridFlow 0.9.6 doesn't use GEM's headers anymore, so,
no need to install the GEM sources, configure them and point to them.
people tended to get this wrong anyway.
this new implementation also is less kludgy in several ways, as it doesn't
use CPPExtern and thus doesn't need funny Zaphod-like objects (two heads:
one for GEM, one for GridFlow).
i know it's gonna blow up at runtime with a future unspecified version of
GEM, but we'll know that we got there when we get there. In the meanwhile
it just saved us from some unspecified amount of work needed to support
multiple versions of GEM at once (GridFlow would have needed three
binaries for three versions of GEM and now doesn't anymore).
in short, it's a happy day for GEM<->GridFlow cultural exchanges.
