Summary: gem search should display platform

Initial Comment:
$ gem search -r ghazel-POpen4

*** REMOTE GEMS ***

ghazel-POpen4 (0.1.4.1)



There is actually only a x86-mswin32 gem for that version, so searching on CentOS returns a result when "gem install" would not be able to install it. Instead "gem search -r" should display the platform somewhere inline:

$ gem search -r ghazel-POpen4

*** REMOTE GEMS ***

ghazel-POpen4 (0.1.4.1) x86-mswin32



or if there is more than one platform:

$ gem search -r ghazel-POpen4

*** REMOTE GEMS ***

ghazel-POpen4 (0.1.5.1) ruby, x86-mswin32
