Error making ruby 1.9.3- host is required. And no base options

I am installing ruby 1.9.3 on a Ubuntu machine.
I recieved the error “executable host ruby is required. use
–with-baseruby option”
After looking online I discovered that you need an older version of ruby
to install ruby…
Many solutions suggested compiling and installing 1.8 and then using it
as a base to compile and install 1.9
HOWEVER it seems that ruby 1.8 is gone? What other options do I have to
use as a base?

Why don’t you use RVM (Ruby Version Manager) instead of compiling it by
yourself?

Why don’t you use the Ruby packaged by Ubuntu as base?
(On Ubuntu 12.04 there is a `ruby1.9.3’ package which AFAIK
provides 1.9.3-p0).
