Compiling Ruby 1.8.4 on AIX HOWTO and Binaries


First of all, I'm new to the list and to Ruby. Hopefully this is the right place to post this, if not please let me know.

Prior to this post, I searched the net looking for information on pre-built binaries for Ruby on AIX and could not find any. Secondly, I looked for a HOWTO on building it for AIX and likewise came up short.

I work in a large AIX shop and found Ruby to be very handy....if I could just find a binary or compile it on AIX....

So I figured it out for myself and documented it. I hope this helps out others with AIX and a desire to develop Ruby on it.
