I've noticed that sometimes having RUBYOPT set (or unset) can trigger  
this problem.  (I have RUBYOPT set to "-rubygems" in my .bashrc.)

I just did a new MP installation the other day, and found that I had  
to "export RUBYOPT=" (to set it to an empty string), and try the "port  
install rb-rubygems" a couple of times before it was successful.
