[DRE-maint] Bug#440506: rubygems: Cannot run fxruby's example, as require 'fox16' fails

Package: rubygems
Version: 0.9.4-4
Severity: normal

I installed fxruby 1.6.11 using rubygems.
Then I tried to run one of the fox examples and got the following error
ruby /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/fxruby-1.6.11/examples/inputs.rb
/var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/fxruby-1.6.11/examples/inputs.rb:3:in `require':
no such file to load -- fox16 (LoadError)
        from /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/fxruby-1.6.11/examples/inputs.rb:3

Adding a 
require 'rubygems'
before the
require 'fox16'
fixed the problem.

It would however be nice if one has nothing to patch before running

Thanks for your word and I hope we will find some day a good solution
to mix apt-get and ruby gems seamlessly.
