Recently I re-installed all my DarwinPorts. This included my Ruby and Rails installs. The first time I ever tried installing Rails I used RubyGems installed by DarwinPorts and it worked without a problem. The second time didn’t went so smooth. It appears that the rb-rubygems package of DarwinPorts is FUBAR or something.
For those trying to get Ruby on Rails running on OSX with DarwinPorts/MacPorts: Watch out for this error:

I’ve ran into this one. The problem? Quite simple to solve. It seems that the DarwinPorts package
sudo port install rb-rubygems should not be used anymore according to some people. Installing rails by using the rubygems installed by DarwinPorts messes things up a little. Try
sudo port port install rb-rails instead. It worked for me. Only drawback is, you didn’t install rails with rubygems and you have to remember to install updates and extra gems by using DarwinPorts.
