I'm setting up a new 5.2.1-RELEASE system and was concerned about this, 
as I was about to install portupgrade, which would also install ruby. 
With all ports up to date, I crossed my fingers and did a make install 
clean. Everything installed and works fine. I got a ruby18 (yes, 18) 
that was linked to ruby.

Are you sure you have the latest portupgrade and ruby installed?
