|Specifically:
| - what's the third item in the items for $INSTALLFILES

It's a prefix to be removed (e.g. "lib" in "lib/foobar.rb").

| - How come `make install` creates directories with permissions rwxr-s---

Does it?

| - How to take *out* the default .so to install

You can't.  You have specified its name by create_makefile(target).

| - is it possible to generate recursive Makefiles?

No. You need to prepare extconf.rb for each directories.

| - can I check availability of headerfiles and complain when they're not
|   found?

unless have_header("foobar.h")
  warn "you should install <foobar.h> first"
  exit
end
