I've written a simple tool that generates RPM spec files from RubyGems.
Details can be found at http://people.redhat.com/dlutter/gem2spec.html

Ata minimum, the generated spec files are a good starting point for
simple packaging of RubyGems, even though they can't address some of the
harder issues around gem/rpm interoperability such as the lack of LSB
compliance of gems. I did manage though to package rails as rpm's with
very little effort. (see http://people.redhat.com/dlutter/yum/)

I would highly appreciate any feedback,
