The patch didn't apply.

Also, the ruby-gems package depends on ruby so this would introduce a
circular dependency.

I wonder if we should just drop the ruby-gems subpackage and let
ruby-libs ship the libs and 'ruby' package ship the /usr/bin/gems file.
That seems to be the most sane way to solve this.

What do you think?
