Irb Failing

Hey everyone
So let me begin my story...
I wanted to be awesome in my own mind, so I decided to learn to program ruby. I installed ruby from source on my mac into /usr/local/bin and everything went dandy. IRB, erb, rdoc, ri, the whole shebang #!!

Then I decided it was time for me to upgrade.
First, I tried installing ruby from darwinports.... No luck....
So then I tried installing it from scratch again, this time in /opt.
Ruby works, erb works, RDoc works, everything EXCEPT irb works.

Here is my error:

[Snow-iMac: ~] ari$ irb
dyld: NSLinkModule() error
dyld: Symbol not found: _rl_filename_completion_function
   Referenced from: /opt/ruby-1.8.6/lib/ruby/1.8/powerpc-darwin8.10.0/readline.bundle
   Expected in: flat namespace

Trace/BPT trap

I feel like someone should've seen this error before! Turns out Ryan Davis, one of my many Ruby gods, has. He had a method which felt sort of hacked together. I haven't tried it yet, but before I do....

Does anyone have any advice on how to solve or fix this?
