There seem to be Debian packages for RubyGems,
though: http://sgtpepper.net/hyspro/deb/

If you plan to install anything from source, it's best to prepend the
installation command with `checkinstall -D`, as it will create a .deb
file, install it (which registers the installed files with apt) and
is a nice way to have the software cleanly uninstallable.

Cheers,
