This topic isn't for pkgsrc-users.  :-)  You had better ask some
Ruby's community.

Yes, Ruby 1.9.1 became popular in these days.

But I planed to import Ruby 1.9 based package after 1.9.2 released
since it is expected to really stable release of Ruby 1.9 series.
I heard that some Ruby's developers said "Ruby 1.9.1 is for users who
developing Ruby's libraries."

I've already finished most of work, but there is one problem about
RubyGems integration part.
