Ruby 1.8.6 on AIX 5.3

I’m trying to get ruby/rails up and running on on an AIX 5.3 box. I’ve
gone through the installation several times, and I’m getting very close.
Ruby compiles, irb and simple ruby programs run, rubygems installs, as
does the rails and mongrel gems. However, when I try to launch mongrel
on an existing project, I get the “no such file to load – openssl”. I
followed the instructions at the following site:

http://homepage.mac.com/cjgibbons/rubyonaixhowto/x72.html

I have the openssl libraries in /opt/freeware, but for some reason ruby
either doesn’t see them or won’t use them. The above tutorial was
written for ruby 1.8.4, so does anyone have experience compiling and
installing 1.8.6 on AIX 5.3?

For anyone curious, I had to update my gcc compiler and get the latest
version of both the openssl and openssl_dev rpms. Once I had all that
installed, ruby, rails, and mongrel installed and worked without a
hitch.
