Summary: Install fails to create directories

Initial Comment:
I was unable to install Ruby where directories needed to be created courtesy a 'stat' call in fileutils.rb:832:

install -c -p -m 0755 ruby /usr/local/stow/ruby-1.8.4/bin/ruby
/Users/samj/src/ruby-1.8.4/lib/fileutils.rb:832:in `stat': No such file or directory - ruby (Errno::ENOENT)
        from /Users/samj/src/ruby-1.8.4/lib/fileutils.rb:832:in `install'
        from /Users/samj/src/ruby-1.8.4/lib/fileutils.rb:1377:in `fu_each_src_dest'
        from /Users/samj/src/ruby-1.8.4/lib/fileutils.rb:1393:in `fu_each_src_dest0'
        from /Users/samj/src/ruby-1.8.4/lib/fileutils.rb:1375:in `fu_each_src_dest'
        from /Users/samj/src/ruby-1.8.4/lib/fileutils.rb:829:in `install'
        from /Users/samj/src/ruby-1.8.4/lib/fileutils.rb:1508:in `install'
        from ./instruby.rb:69:in `install'
        from ./instruby.rb:114
        from ./instruby.rb:64:in `install?'
        from ./instruby.rb:111
