I'm building RPM's from gems, and as part of that process, I'm running unit tests using gem check --test. Recently I updated rubygems from version 1.3.7 to 1.5.2. The gem check --test command no longer works, and --test no longer appears in gem help check output.

Is there another way to invoke a gem's unit tests with rubygems 1.5.2?
