Thanks to Robert O.

The bundle was in /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/powerpc-darwin6.6, as you said,
but my attempt to run irb produced the following. I'm afraid I don't know
what kconv is, or how to procede.

[PALMERS:ruby/1.8/irb] gary% irb

It has been linked in the socket.bundle file. That is MacOS X equivalent of
a shared library. You should be able to find it in
/usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/powerpc-darwin.

Running irb should show you whether it work or not:

irb(main):001:0> require "socket"
=> true
