I think the easiest way is to simply download the tarball from 
www.ruby-lang.org and compile it yourself. If you've already got the 
Xcode tools installed, it's simply a matter of

./configure
make
sudo make install

And the make sure you've got /usr/local/bin in front of /usr/bin in your 
PATH:

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