[p4ruby] gem broken

Good idea. I've gone ahead and submitted a new p4ruby gem (1.0.10)
which hard-codes r10.2, so the gem will work for now. The following
has been added to the readme:

**** NOTE ****

This is a temporary fork of the p4ruby gem which works around an
ongoing problem of missing files on the Perforce server.

This fork is hard-coded to download version r10.2 only.

In the past Perforce has ignored such problems with their ftp server.
Since these issues are ongoing and beyond my control, I have
transferred ownership of the gem to Perforce, who may or may not
resolve the matter. Please send bug reports to them.

**** NOTE ****

To googlers who find this post in the future: If you're wondering why
the p4ruby gem is not downloading r11.1 or r11.2 or higher, it's
because Perforce has not removed the r10.2 workaround.
