Yesterday I was setting up a new box with Mac OS X Lion at the office. I had installed
rvm and ruby 1.9.3rc1
and when I ran
bundle in a project folder I got the following error:
Installing net-ssh (2.1.4)
Installing net-scp (1.0.4)
Installing nokogiri (1.5.0) with native extensions
Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
extconf.rb:10: Use RbConfig instead of obsolete and deprecated Config.

libiconv is missing. please visit http://nokogiri.org/tutorials/installing_nokogiri.html for help with installing dependencies.
I checked out
nokogiri’s Mac OS X installation instructions.
The instructions didn’t work for the above error and I ended up doing the following instead:
~ $ brew install libiconv
==> Downloading http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libiconv/libiconv-1.14.tar.gz
~ $ brew link libiconv
Linking /usr/local/Cellar/libiconv/1.14... 17 symlinks created
The trick is to do the
brew link command, this adds libiconv to the homebrew path so the compiler
can find the lib and header files. After running those homebrew commands the nokogiri installation worked:
~ $ gem install nokogiri
Building native extensions. This could take a while...
