Running RVM (Ruby 1.9.2) and RubyGems 1.3.7:

$ gem install slimgems
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
ERROR:  Error installing slimgems:

Obviously this won't be the standard use case -- there'll be more people installing SlimGems from later versions of RubyGems. I doubt this'll be unique, though.

I was able to install successfully once I gem update --systemed to RubyGems 1.8.5.
