HOWTO: Install RMagick on OS X

Hello all fellow Mac OS X Railers.

I’m just setting up a new MacBook from scratch.

Everything has gone very easily, so I decide to attempt
to install RMagick from scratch once again, something
that I’ve wrestled with in the past, finally punting and
going with a DarwinPorts ImageMagick install then direct
gem install of RMagick.

Well, I had no problems and have achieved success. The
ImageMagick has TIFF, PNG, and JPG support, but no text
support, etc. as I only use it to process images for now.

I’ve packaged the details into a bash script which can
be studied or executed directly.

Have fun!
