There's currently no ruby compiler.

If you want better performance take look at YARV project ( 
http://www.atdot.net/yarv/ )

If you want to protect your code from reuse, here are some well-known 
rules ( http://www.faqs.org/docs/artu/ch01s06.html )

Just INVERT them all and apply INVERTED rules to your code and mind - 
and there will be no need to compile or obfuscate your code ever :)))
