mkmf.rb (which is required by extconf.rb) is the place to look to see  
if you can override Config::CONFIG['INSTALL'], perhaps with an  
environment variable.  It should get passed straight from the gem  
install command down to the extconf.rb in a subshell.  If not, please  
file a bug on our tracker.
