Unable to install Gems with RubyGems on Intel OSX with Darwi

I followed Duncan Davidson’s Sandboxing Rails with Darwin Ports guide
and
everything went fine up till the part where I had to install gems using
gem
install. I would get this stacktrace:

Attempting local installation of ‘rake’
Local gem file not found: rake*.gem

Adding GEM_PATH and GEM_HOME variables to ~/.profile didnt work either:

export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/opt/local/apache2/bin:$PATH
export RUBYLIB=/opt/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8:/opt/local/lib/ruby/1.8
export GEM_PATH=/opt/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
export GEM_HOME=/opt/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

Darwin Ports is installing ports in /opt/local/
Is there something I’m missing here?

There was a very recent thread on this topic 1. I suggest
installing gems /not/ through darwinports. You can download gems at
http://rubyforge.org/projects/rubygems/. Make sure you run setup.rb
using the correct ruby (/opt/local/bin/ruby).

yeah, following the steps to manually install the sources gem did the
trick.
