Problem building ruby from source on FreeBSD 8.0

Haldo!
I am having a problem building ruby 1.9 on my FreeBSD box. make keeps
telling me “executable host ruby is required, use --with-baseruby
option”
I haven’t put ruby on this system yet, so I don’t get why it doesn’t
know that ruby isn’t there.
Thanks!

unless you have a specific reason for making ruby from source, simply
build it from ports.

cd /usr/ports/lang/ruby19 && make install clean
