The upstream name is "sqlite3-ruby".  Nobody is forcing us to add rubygems
to our ports tree, there's always a plain version which is more universal
and even preferrable.  The app will continue to work anyway because it
still 'require' a proper thing, it's the gem system itself that's the problem.
And in any case, the port name doesn't have anything to do with the gem
it installs.
