The book mentions not to have Ruby in /usr/bin but stops short at explaining why… I was wondering if somebody could shed some light.

Cheers

I should also mention, I’m running this on Mac OSX 10.6.7

/usr/bin is the place where XCode place default OSX ruby version (which is very outdated). You dont want to mess with this directory because it might breaks things that XCode relies on. Hence, it’s the best to settle with compiling to /usr/local OR using ‘rvm’ to install ruby.
