After updating to rubygems 1.3 I started getting these warnings when
running "rake gems:update" :

WARNING:  Installing to ~/.gem since /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8 and
          /usr/bin aren't both writable.
WARNING:  You don't have /Users/myhome/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin in your PATH,
          gem executables will not run.

It looks like the gems unpack fine but I found this weird.

Mac OS X 10.5.5
gem 1.3.0
