Hi,

I'm not sure if a fix should be applied via patches to the FreeBSD port of ruby or in ruby itself, but on Ruby 1.9.1(patchlevel 129) you cannot fork a process.

irb(main):002:0> Process.fork
NotImplementedError: fork() function is unimplemented on this machine
        from (irb):2:in `fork'
        from (irb):2
        from /opt/ruby19/bin/irb19:12:in `<main>'

I love ruby, and I love FreeBSD. It'd be great if i can combine both. Thanks!
