Summary: local gem install hits network even when gemfile exists locally

Initial Comment:
The RubyGems documentation for gem install says: 

"It will attempt a local installation (i.e. a .gem file in the current directory), and if that fails, it will attempt to download and install
the most recent version of the gem you want." (http://docs.rubygems.org/read/chapter/10#page33) 

It appears that it still accesses the network even when the .gem file exists locally. This significantly slows down local gem installs. You can easily verify this by noticing the different in how long the command takes with and without the --local option.

Message:
I'm not seeing any network access at all. Either this was fixed or invalid. Reopen if it isn't fixed for you and you can provide a repro that shows the problem.

Message:
I'm trying:

sudo gem install test.gem
vs
sudo gem install -local test.gem

I believe this is a much more common scenario than the one
you describe, though I'm guessing, you are saying it is
equivalent.

It definitely hits the network and takes a lot longer as I
describe.
