Use "::RbConfig::CONFIG" instead of just "CONFIG".  See attached diff.

Testing with puredata and gem packages from Debian Jessie (pd 0.46.2):

Compiling spits out many source_filter.rb warnings and C++ narrowing 

Gem bridge seems broken (bogus copy2Image pointer or similar message).

Had to compile with OpenCV disabled else I got unknown symbol cvEllipse 
on load.

Examples menu is broken (tcl/tk popup about pd_open_dir or similar).

Closing the gridflow index patch doesn't work (unknown object error in 
console) - patch window is cleared but refuses to disappear.

But the good news: game_of_life.pd seems to work fine.
