I use this one for situations where there is no pre-built binary gem.
It's really designed to run on our local gem server (which includes a
windows build environment), and then it packs up any gems that change:
It probably needs more work, and requires root on most *nix systems.
It'll also need some tweaks to work with rubyinline, which I've yet to
complete (thus the lack of release).
Anyway, have fun.
