ports/144568: Ruby 1.9.1 has rubygems version 1.3.1 built in, but some gems require a newer version. 1.3.5 is available by the ports, but needs the following changes.

Okay, that patch has a few typos...   i.e. RUBYS_VAR (wrong) instead

Is defining another make variable like RUBY_SVAR the best way to make
sure that installed elements named after the installed version of Ruby
are correctly named?  i.e. gem18 or gem19 depending on whether
RUBY_VER is 1.8 or 1.9? Other suggestions?

Hoping Ruby 1.9.1 can be a first class citizen under FreeBSD soon,
Aaron out.
