OK, thanks to the timely help of Lyle Johnson (Thanks, Lyle!) I got
FXRuby 1.6.4 compiled and installed.  Unfortunately I cannot say that I
have it running.

1.  Using 'gem install fxruby', as per the FXRuby web site's warning,
doesn't work.  (This was not unexpected.)
2.  Building FXRuby 1.6.4 myself from source and installing it
('install.rbconfig', 'install.rb setup' and 'install.rb install') seems
to have worked in that it compiled (relatively) cleanly, made the files
I'd expect and then put them about where I'd expect to find them.
That's where the good news ends, however.  When I try a quick test of
it, things fail in ways I can't figure out:


        $ irb
        irb(main):001:0> require 'fox16'
        LoadError: libfxscintilla.so.18: cannot open shared object file:
        No such file or directory

        lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   24 2006-12-11

        19:25 /usr/local/lib/libfxscintilla.so.18.1.1


My inexperienced eyes can find nothing wrong.  The fox16.so file that it
claims it can't find is very obviously there.  Or, if I'm misreading
this, the libfxscintilla.so.18 file it claims it can't find is also
clearly present.  Permissions seem to all be sane.  I can't figure out
what it wants from me.  What painfully, laughably obvious thing am I
missing here?
