For rspec-1.1.9 you have to be on rubygems 1.3 to avoid those
dependencies (as they are developer deps and I just used hoe to create
the gemspec, which makes them normal deps for rubygems <= 1.2).

I'll make sure that dep is not there for the next rspec release, but
in the mean time, upgrading to rubygems 1.3 and reinstalling rspec
will solve your problem. That assumes that there is a jgem-1.3. If
not, you can probably do this:

git clone git://github.com/dchelimsky/rspec.git
git co 1.1.9

Then modify rspec.gemspec to eliminate the dependency and build the gem locally:

jgem build rspec.gemspec
jgem install pkg/rspec-1.1.9.gem
