I've never heard of this before, and I've been using gems for a long  
time.  I've never reinstalled my gems when upgrading ruby.  I've used  
C components from ruby 1.8.2 with 1.8.6.

If you do have to recompile, this is a bug in either Ruby or the  
extension because something changed incompatibly.  Probably the  
extension though.
