I think the Rakefile in each submodule should have a task that can be
called to write the gemspec to the current directory, e.g. `rake
gemspec`. See the attached patch, you will want to send that upstream.

then you would call `rake gemspec` for each module on
override_dh_auto_build, and clean them up in override_dh_auto_clean.
Something like this:

MODULES = $(grep-dctrl -n -s X-DhRuby-Root '' debian/control)

	for mod in $(MODULES); do (cd $$mod && rake gemspec); done

	for mod in $(MODULES); do (cd $$mod && rm -f *.gemspec); done

With this, it should all Just Work™.
