What does the new config.gems get you that the old $GEM_PATH and $GEM_HOME does not? See http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowToUseMu... I just have a global gems repo, and the wider use-any-gem functionality of vendor/gems for all gems, not just rails, by setting: GEM_HOME to RAILS_ROOT/gems and setting: GEM_PATH to $GEM_HOME:<the rest> What am I missing? just %mkdir gems gems/bin %export GEM_HOME=gems and so on. See the web page above.
