ruby 1.8.2 on AIX 5.1 with IPv4 socket was also built, which was
configured with '--disable-ipv6' and '--prefix=/usr/local/ruby182'

  binary:
    http://www.jiubao.org/tmp/ruby182-aix51.tar.gz (AIX 5.1)
    http://www.jiubao.org/tmp/ruby182-aix52.tar.gz (AIX 5.2)

  root user:
    cd /usr/local
    gzip -dc ruby182-aix51.tar.gz | tar xvf -
     ..or..
    gzip -dc ruby182-aix52.tar.gz | tar xvf -

  users:
    PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/ruby182/bin
    export PATH

They are tested by the following simple script.

   require 'net/http'
   Net::HTTP.start('www.example.com', 80) { |http|
      response = http.get('/index.html')
      puts response.body
   }
