Everything related to gems, except rubygems package itself, is in
/usr/lib/ruby/gems. If you have a 64-bit platform, some of it may be
in /usr/lib64/ruby/gems. To preserve your installed gems you just need
to keep this directory (or directories) intact, and make sure to
re-install rubygems after you replace ruby.
