Sound good, but too verbose. I like the build-dep command of apt-get
(that's the only thing I like, for the record) :-)

This will require adding the new command, the new
development_dependency (or build_dependency) to the specs and make
check command use this instead.

I'm trying to collect enough info to make this happen, then I can
create a patch and submit to rubyforge. :-D
