Unable to load fireruby gem

I get the following error when trying to load fireruby, despite having
used “sudo gem install fireruby” to install the gem and confirming
that fr_lib.so exists at the location pointed to by the path.

I have the following in my test program which reports the error (see

require ‘rubygems’
require_gem ‘fireruby’

*** Error ***

Any help appreciated.
