Thanks, I got part way with the -i, but couldn't understand where
I'd got to.  Would a patch like:

--- ./lib/rubygems/gem_commands.rb.orig 2005-07-10 11:20:26.000000000 +0000
+++ ./lib/rubygems/gem_commands.rb      2006-02-01 19:47:12.113260000 +0000

         out = "Rubygems Environment:\n"
         out << "  - VERSION: #{Gem::RubyGemsVersion} (#{Gem::RubyGemsPackageVersion})\n"
         out << "  - INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: #{Gem.dir}\n"
-        out << "  - GEM PATH:\n"
+        out << "  - GEM PATH:  (set ENV[\"GEM_HOME\"] to change)\n"
         Gem.path.collect { |p| out << "     - #{p}\n" }
         out << "  - REMOTE SOURCES:\n"
         Gem::RemoteInstaller.new.sources.collect do |s|

be a useful thing to have?

        Thank you,
        Hugh
