There is no better way yet. Wait for chef_package or create this resource by yourselves ;)

What's the best way to install native pre_reqs of a chef_gem? For example, for the mysql2 gem that needs the Ubuntu package libmysqlclient-dev installed, how do I make sure that happens before the chef_gem is installed?

Are we back to doing something like this:

libmysql_package = package "libmysqlclient-dev" do
 action :nothing


chef_gem "mysql2"

That would be too bad since chef_gem was created to avoid that very hack. :)
