It fails like this:

sds$ ruby -v
ruby 1.9.2p0 (2010-08-18 revision 29036) [x86_64-darwin10.4.0]
sds$ gem --version
sds$ gem update --system

    Ok, installing rubygems-update does work.

    Of course there is a ton of this kind of thing:

    NOTE: Gem::Specification#default_executable= is deprecated with no replacement. It will be removed on or after 2011-10-01.
    Gem::Specification#default_executable= called from /Users/sds/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p0/specifications/rubygems-update-1.8.1.gemspec:11.

    gem pristine --all --no-executables and following up individually with the binary gems will clear up the deprecations.
