You can still *use* RubyGems if you want, but Bundler would allow you
to only load if it you need to. "Typical" buildr usage wouldn't need
to go outside the base distro.

Precompiling is not a requirement for bundling everything into a
single jar, other than that you need a "main" entry point that Java
can see. You basically can just stuff all the .rb files into a jar and
they'll work like they're on the filesystem (modulo crazy __FILE__
path manipulation some people do).
