The ri and rdoc handling needs some special care.  IMHO the doc tree 
should go in /usr/share/doc, and I don't think that gems, or ruby are 
built to do that.   I think that some kind of docs should go in 
/usr/share/doc (I hate installing rpms with no documentation), but 
installing docs in the correct location takes a little bit of brain 
scratching.

I found the gem2rpm rpm, I'll play with it in the coming days.
