I am working to upgrade the package. Thanks for the great patch.
I will prepare the new package during this week end.

For Ruby 1.9 and RubyGems migration, if Ruby 1.9 really contains RubyGems,
rubygems package for 1.9 should come with ruby1.9 package. I wait for Ruby 1.9
release and will see how the upstream deal with things. Watching developer's
mail list, they still have some things to be resolved. Anyway, rubygems package
for 1.8 needs to be maintained separately until Ruby 1.8 is gone.
