Ruby on Rails - Getting Starting on OS X

This week I have been devoting some time to learning Ruby. I'm starting with the language itself so that I can come at Rails versed in the underlying architecture. I'm a big believer in building up a decent mental model of the lower levels of a system before I begin using higher level tools.

Which is why I spent quite a bit of time messing around with DarwinPorts, installing Ruby, Rails, RubyGems, MySQL, and lots of other software. One of the things that I've heard in complaints about Ruby, and frankly about many open source projects, is that installation can be tricky and sometimes downright painful. And I'd have to say that there are a few hiccups in getting Rails working on OS X.
