So, why no Ruby Gems yet?

Not sure about the backporting thing, but I just install rubygems on
my system using checkinstall, easily making my own .deb for it. I
believe that these were the steps I used (going from memory here):
1. apt-get install checkinstall
2. Download rubygems from rubyforge and extract tarball.
3. cd to rubygems directory.
4. Type: checkinstall ruby ./setup.rb
5. Answer some questions.
6. Install the resulting .deb package.
According to the rubygems site:
"Debian Linux: Debian does not automatically include all the standard
Ruby libararies in the basic Ruby package. As a result, you may need
to ''apt-get'' libyaml-ruby and libzlib-ruby before you can install
... so, you may have to follow that advice on Ubuntu as well.
