I ran into this error as well while trying to install rmagick on Windows
(32 bit XP).  I needed to first navigate to the folder containing the
.gem file and then run chdir in order to set the folder as my current
directory, after that gem install rmagick --local works properly

C:\>chdir C:\Temp\rmagick-win32

C:\Temp\rmagick-win32>dir
 Volume in drive C has no label.
