Hmn, not that I'm aware of, you could try installing mongrel gem which
are signed:

gem install mongrel -P HighSecurity

That uses OpenSSL to verify the signed gem

So far seems there wasn't new errors with current installer. So I'll
work on marking that release as Final and do the announce in

I'll love to focus in the new installer to be able to deliver both
1.8.6 and 1.9.1 by Christmas (or a bit after) :-D
