Good Day!  I am attempting to install Jobsworth on FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE 
(amd64).  It requires Ruby 1.9.x.

I attempted to install Ruby and applicable gems via the FreeBSD ports 
collection.  Suffice to say that this procedure did not work.  :-)  My 
next step was RTFM...

In following the instructions at https://github.com/ari/jobsworth#readme 
<http://www.google.com/url?satps://github.com/ari/jobsworth%23readme> 
, I was able to get much further in the installation process!

I was able to get to Step 5 (Ruby gems).  The only way I could get Step 
5 (Ruby gems) to complete was to run the command as root although the 
instructions wanted the commands run as my Apache user.

When I run Step 6 (Setup configuration and database) and initialize the 
database schema, I get:
Initialize database schema [n]: y
Initializing database schema

rake aborted!
no such file to load -- iconv

I have attempted:

http://exceptionz.wordpress.com/2010/02/03/how-to-fix-the-iconv-require-error-in-ruby-1-9/

http://www.v25media.com/blog/read/forcing_ruby_1_9_2_via_rvm_to_use_iconv

http://blog.dev001.net/post/2436585997/installing-iconv-using-bundler-on-freebsd

Each of these refer to installing ruby using the --with-iconv-dir 
option.  I have tried the following commands after 'rvm package install 
iconv':

rvm install --trace 1.9.2 -C 
--with-iconv-dirsr/local/rvm/src/libiconv-1.13.1

rvm install --trace 1.9.2 -C --with-iconv-dirOME/.rvm/usr

rvm install --trace 1.9.2 --C --with-iconv-dirsr/local/lib

None have worked.  I fear I am missing something simple.  Alas, I have 
zero Ruby experience prior to this project.  Any assistance would be 
greatly appreciated!!!  :-)

Thank You In Advance!
