I'm trying to update my ruby install on Leopard to at least 1.9.1. I found a tutorial that tells me how to do it with RVM and I get as far as downloading, configuring and compiling the version I want, but during the compile I get errors.

When checking the make.error.log file this is the message I get:

[2010-11-07 13:43:44] make 
main.c: In function ‘objcdummyfunction’:
main.c:19: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘objc_msgSend’
main.c: At top level:

readline.c: In function ‘username_completion_proc_call’:

readline.c:1159: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
readline.c:1159: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[1]: *** [readline.o] Error 1
make: *** [] Error 1

I have no idea what any of that means. Help?

Ruby is available via Homebrew, currently at version 1.9.2-p180. Homebrew makes sure you have all dependencies in compatible versions. – Daniel Beck May 13 '11 at 8:03

The RVM docs have a page with a suggestion for readline issues:
