Summary: gem platform problem

Initial Comment:
Trying to install a gem failed. Here's a little story written in bash:


user at host:~/$ gem tumble
This command is deprecated, Gemcutter.org is the primary source for gems.
user at host:~/$ gem sources
*** CURRENT SOURCES ***

http://gems.rubyforge.org/
user at host:~/$ gem search ghazel-POpen4

*** LOCAL GEMS ***


user at host:~/$ gem search -r ghazel-POpen4

*** REMOTE GEMS ***

ghazel-POpen4 (0.1.4.1)
user at host:~/$ gem install ghazel-POpen4
ERROR:  could not find gem ghazel-POpen4 locally or in a repository


The problem here actually was that there was only a "x86-mswin32" gem available, but gem didn't present that information in any way - either in the error message or in the search output.

Message:
Short gem list output now prints out platforms when there are non-ruby platforms for a version:

$ gem search -ra ghazel-POpen4

*** REMOTE GEMS ***

ghazel-POpen4 (0.1.5.1 ruby x86-mswin32, 0.1.4.1 x86-mswin32)
