FWIW.. I do not understand the value of doing the gem-install earlier.
Since the spec says to do an install and then copy everything, it seems
IIRC, the main reason was that if you just do gem install in %install,
it's next to impossible to patch a gem. There were a couple of cases
where that led to serious gymnastics in the specfile.
