I am having trouble getting oci8 to load.

CentOS 5.6
Ruby 1.9.2
OCI8 2.0.6
Ruby installed with RVM
(set Oracle environment variables)

$ gem install oci8
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
Successfully installed ruby-oci8-2.0.6
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for ruby-oci8-2.0.6...
Installing RDoc documentation for ruby-oci8-2.0.6...

Yet when I try to use it in any context I get...

$ ruby -r oci8
puts 'Hello world!'
<internal:lib/rubygems/custom_require>:29:in `require': no such file to 
load -- oci8 (LoadError)
        from <internal:lib/rubygems/custom_require>:29:in `require'
$

I'm fairly sure I'm missing something trivial but being an admin (not a 
ruby developer) I've no idea what.  Does ruby need an LD_LIBRARY_PATH 
element to point to the gems?

My apologies if this isn't exactly the right place for the question.

$ ruby -v
ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09 revision 32553) [x86_64-linux]
$ gem -v

1.8.10
$ gem list
