Did you get any further?  I tried compiling against 1.9 today, but it
wont link gtk or pango.  It complains about missing functions that
should be exported to ruby-glib2.  I have no idea of how to solve it.
Has anyone gotten further?

I had a problem with 1.9 if I remember well, and I needed a working copy for a demo, so I went with 1.8. I don't remember exactly what it was.

I would like to have an installer, but it's not high on my todo list.

I will see if I can find some time to retest 1.9, and see what failed.
