You know you can make your own gem source right?  I think that'd be a hell of a lot better for provisioning a bunch of machines than pulling the stuff of the internet.  Take a look in the Rakefile for mongrel at the gem_source target.  All you do is grab all the .gem files your systems need, then run the gem indexing tool and rsync them up to your own web server.  After that, you just setup all your scripts to always grab from there instead of the internet.  Should speed things up and you can even do different sources for win32 vs. unix gems.
