I am trying to get a good quality search capability across our site. I
ran across ActiveSearch
which seems to be a better solution for us than SimpleSearch (and
SearchGenerator) as it is more than just word based. However, I am
unable to get the project built and being fairly new to Ruby / Rails I'm
a little at a loss. My first choice would be a magic gem install (if it
exists), but if I really need to build it on my own I am up to the task.
My issue right now is a problem in the build with a dependency on
ActiveRecord code. I have downloaded that but am now having issues
installing it as well. Any guidance would be great - thanks.

Unless you want to stick with ActiveSearch, I would recommend Ferret:
