Rubygem RPMs and "yum update"

I have just upgraded to Fedora 18 x86_64 and installed all the 
Ruby/Rails RPMs but I notice when I create a test rails app and then add 
something to Gemfile and do "bundle install", the system starts pulling 
in all the native Gems - I would like to stick to just using RPMs - so I 
presume "bundle install" does not get used in the change to the RPM 
environment? (ie I should manually install the missing gem RPMs).

Also, I presume one has to be careful about doing a system-wide update 
of RPMs with "yum update" in case updated Gems break stuff specified in
