(Alexandria is the drive that holds my tiger install. Currently it 
segfaults on boot. :) 

vivi /Volumes/Alexandria/usr/lib/ruby % ls -l
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  113 root     wheel        3842 Jun 18 03:59 1.8/

vivi /Volumes/Alexandria/usr/bin % strings ruby | grep 1.8
1.8.0

So yes, the current tiger build includes ruby 1.8.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look at this point like either perl or ruby 
gets the neat cocoa extensions that python got in panther. :(
