I am having problems trying to install new gems.  Most notably, recently
I have attempted to install the fcgi and the mysql gems.  In both cases,
I get the following error:

can't find header files for ruby.
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (RuntimeError)
    ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
Gem files will remain installed in ..................

Can anyone shed any light on this issue?  I have been stuck for a couple
of days, and I would really like to get this fixed.

Thanks in advance.

Hi John ~

What platform are you using?  Does running: ruby -v
Display the version number?

What OS are you on? What reference are you using? I followed the
instructions for mac os on apple
developer site. There is no problem if you just follow the instructions.
Now my Powerbook G4 is a
screaming Rails machine.

After unstalling ruby/gem/rails and then reinstalling everything, It
looks like gem is working.  Thanks!
