Rubygems configuration

I used darwin ports to install ruby, rubygems, and apparently a few
dependencies.

Whenever I run the following to continue in my quest for a working
ruby/rails/mysql playground … i get the following … what may I
have missed?

razor:~ dhaskew$ sudo gem install rails

Hi. It looks to me like something went wrong with the darwin ports
RubyGems install. You might want to remove and reinstall that. If
you type “gem list”, you should see a gem called “sources”, which
tells RubyGems where to download gems from. It’s a part of the
RubyGems system, so it’s not optional and should always be installed
along with the RubyGems framework.

perhaps the gem was installed in the wrong place somehow?

should there be a file in the gems directory then?

… above you can see where the gem was installed to by ports/
rubygems initially

when I reinstalled it locally, it installed it somewhere different.
now I can issue my commands

razor:~ dhaskew$ sudo gem list
