I must be missing something? What is it that surprises you here?

Apparently newgem has a dependency on rubigen.
I’d expect that
gem install newgem
would auto-install its dependencies, then it.

Thanks!

There is something wrong with this gem. On OS X it installs fine, but I
get a similar error on Vista.

I downloaded the source, but I don’t see a gemspec. My suggestion is to
report this to Dr. Nic.
