This isn't the right mailing list. This list is for RubyGems itself,
not for support or help install a gem with RubyGems (unless RubyGems
itself is blowing up).
You'll need to contact the author of id3lib-ruby to find out the
correct options to pass to get it to pick up files installed in /usr/
local. gem install id3lib-ruby -- --with-opt-dir=/usr/local might work.
Poor workers blame their tools. Good workers build better tools. The
best workers get their tools to do the work for them. -- Syndicate Wars
