Well, IIRC, thank Gentoo for that solution.

Not yet, although I'll try building it from source and see how it goes;
there are a few very minor things I'd like to see changed.

I disagree with this one.  The rubygems system isn't (yet) so integral
to ruby like CPAN to perl.  It's a separate package upstream with its
own release cycle, so I think it should be a separate package here as well.
