GEM was never shipped with a CP/M system.

There are two GEM source branches, one for x86 systems and one for the
68k. There may have been one version that utilized GSX to create a
version of GEM for CP/M-86, but there is no indication of this in the
source code.

GEM AES (application environment services) as well as some other low-level
support routines.

FYI, if you want the sources to GEM and some updated Desktop code, head
over to
