I have Ruby 1.8 installed (on Linux) in /usr/local/bin/.
I want to have a copy of a Ruby 1.9 snapshot around too, so I can try
out stuff out with that.
But I can’t figure out how to install it in a different location.
I’ve altered the “prefix” variable in the Makefile, but when I do a
“make install”, it just overwrites my Ruby 1.8 installation in /usr/
I imagine there is a simple solution to this. Can anyone share it?

Try supplying --program-suffix to configure.
I use --program-suffix=1.9 for 1.9.
to see all the options
usually, i do:
configure --prefix=/usr/local/opt/ruby/1.9 --program-suffix=.yarv
and then symlink what is in /usr/local/opt/ruby/1.9/bin to
hope this helps,
