Warning messages on gem:unpack after updating to rubygems 1.3

After updating to rubygems 1.3 I started getting these warnings when
running "rake gems:update" :

WARNING: Installing to ~/.gem since /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8 and
    /usr/bin aren't both writable.
WARNING: You don't have /Users/myhome/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin in your PATH,
    gem executables will not run.

It looks like the gems unpack fine but I found this weird.

Mac OS X 10.5.5
gem 1.3.0
edge rails

Thanks.

I'm not a MacOS user, but it it were my error message on almost any flavor of
Unix, ...

I'd rerun the command as root if I was running as a normal user.

I have tried that and I am still getting:

WARNING: Installing to ~/.gem since /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8 and
          /usr/bin aren't both writable.
WARNING: You don't have /Users/myhome/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin in your PATH,
          gem executables will not run.

it says that the gem installed successfully, and i see it listed with
gem list, but when I launch the server, it kills b/c it cannot find
the gem.
