I usually use a ruby installed through DarwinPorts, but I have some
scripts which are hardcoded for /usr/bin/ruby.

My shell wrote:
> rubysig.h       version.h
> dl.h            env.h           node.h          ruby.h          st.h
> $ /usr/bin/ruby -e 'p $LOAD_PATH'
> ["/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8", "/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/
> powerpc-darwin8.0", "/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby", "/usr/lib/ruby/1.8",
> "/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/powerpc-darwin8.0", "."]

If you can't see from the listing, the standard lib is gone. Also
gone: /usr/bin/ri and /usr/bin/irb. I haven't messed around with the
default installation, I suspect the update to 10.4.6 did. Can anyone
else confirm this?

There is a 1.8/universal-darwin8.0 folder, but ruby isn't universal.
