Yup, I'd suggest using the mirror listed here, which is rsync'd whenever
a new gem is released:

http://tomcopeland.blogs.com/juniordeveloper/2006/10/rubyforge_down.html

But it doesn't have the gem indexing data, so you'll need to download
the files manually rather than with the gem client.  I'll see what I can
do about generating a gem index there.
