I think you are aware of the error.. but I'd like to mention on the list
that you can get around it by first installing the gem in MRI that seems
to
make it go away.

» igem install bacon
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (TypeError)
    allocator undefined for Zlib::Inflate

» gem install bacon

ERROR:  While executing gem ... (TypeError)
    can't convert Array into String

To install the rails gem there is only one issue remaining and that has
to
do with a file in the actionmailer test fixtures. The name of the file
ends
in a ~ and apparently ironruby doesn't like that.

/USUALLY/ filenames ending in ~ are backup files.. are you sure the file
causes issues is a critical file?

The file may be an accidental checkin, but the bug is real. I should be
able to handle a file with ~ in the filename.
