Docker has the same issue (and, I believe, Jenkins). I already mentioned rubygems being default in the ruby environment. But you know, what? The three I know all have the same easy fix--repoint the root of the search space to something you control.

The hard part is maintaining the almost-a-mirror running on a server you control. Hard, but at least possible.
