I recently had a need to install the Rails 1.2.6 gem (for support
reasons).  When I did it, the dependencies were not installed
automatically, so I had to find and get the correct versions of
actinomailer, actionpack, etc.

Anybody seen this behavior before and have any insight into that?

What version of RubyGems are you using to do the install?  If it's
before 1.2.1 (I think), you need to add the --include-dependencies
switch to the gem install command.

1.3.1

That's kind of why I'm asking.  I know that 1.3.1 is supposed to handle
dependencies automagically.
