matching rubygems and librubygems available


I just went through installing ruby, irb and rdoc from your great
collection of etch backports that I just discovered.

However, when I then try to install rubygems from either stable or
testing, I run into problems.

Don't expect you to solve those problems!  :-)  Before giving up on
backports ruby, thought I'd check with you about gems.

But do you have a matching librubygems and rubygems packages for the
other ruby 1.8 packages on the site?

Or is there a problem with the gems package - ie, some reason that you
decided not to provide it at this time?

Do you build rubygems from source in this case?
