[FreeBSD-Q] Creating .so libraries on FreeBSD?

Beastie People,

I'm working with some ruby software called scrAPI.

I got scrAPI working on my Mac so that's good.

FreeBSD is different story.

My beastie box is tripping over tidy.

I think it wants a tidy.so library.

When I installed scrAPI on my Mac; it came with the
Mac shared library bolted on already.

I'm not sure how to make a tidy.so library.

On my FreeBSD box...
I can make a tidy executable using the src I got from source forge.

It looks like I have 2 options:

-Learn how to make a tidy.so
-Learn how to configure scrAPI so it uses /usr/local/bin/tidy
 rather than tidy.so

Any tips anyone?
