I tried the same thing for FreeBSD and because of the issues that
Mauricio Fernandez and because of the additional complexity of gems that
include C-extension I came up with a very simple solutions that works
quite well for FreeBSD.
Just wrap around gem install/uninstall.
This way users can still use the OS package manager to install/update
gems and you avoid all problems that reside out of unpacking a gem and
installing it by hand.
