Have you tried to compile it from the source? Any problem with that?
Just in case you do not know how to do it:

gunzip ruby-1.8.5-p12.tar.gz | tar xvf -
cd ruby-1.8.5-p12
./configure
make
su
make install

It will make ruby available as /usr/local/bin/ruby

If you want another location to install ruby in, modify the configure
step with:

./configure --prefix=/location/that/you/prefer

Then after "make install" ruby will be available as
/location/that/you/prefer/bin/ruby
