I think you are saying "into the build dir" (i.e. %_builddir). Then:

As you know for rubygems containing C codes I suggested to install
them first under %_builddir, compile C codes there and copy all files
into %buildroot and this was already accepted by FPC/FESCo.
So I think suggesting to install _all_ rubygems under %_builddir first
can also be accepted.

What I am wondering currently is at what stage we should install rubygems
into %_builddir, whether %prep or %build.
Current "rubygem with C code" (proposed by me) is
- to create "empty" directory first by "%setup -q -c -T" at %prep
- then install rubygems under %_builddir at %build (then some compilation
  is done in %build)
- then copy all needed files at %install
However if we want to use "%patch0 -p1 -b .foo", for example, for files
installed under %_builddir, rubygems must be installed under %_builddir
at %prep, because rpm does not accept %patch? method at %build like:
+ %patch0 -p0 -b .filechooser
