I did an update via abs right know and ran into some smaller problems:
- Ruby 1.9.1 now includes rubygems, so I had to remove that first.
- /usr/bin/rake wasn't owned by any package.
- vim (compiled with --enable-rubyinterp) won't work (and compile)

However, ruby 1.9.1 is really faster than old 1.8.7.

I'll test further for some shortcomings with the new ruby.
