Michael,

1)  You can:

  CFLAGS=...  configure --prefix=~
  make clean install

to build ruby and install to your home directory.  The resulting
binary will live in ~/bin.  Libraries install in ~/lib

2)  Can't help here.  Hopefully others can.

3)  Beware that bash has a built-in, crippled "time" command that shadows
/usr/bin/time
