The only problem I see here is that there is no option to disable -- 
program-prefix. You should be able to do --disable-framework and -- 
disable-fat-binary, though.

I also do not like that much these default args. Without them MacRuby  
still builds. Since we are replacing many parts of the original  
implementation, and also aiming at only one platform here, maybe the  
best idea would be to throw autotools and use something else. Like a  
Rakefile for example (we can assume that everyone will have ruby and  
rake by default, since we require Leopard). Maybe there is a better  
alternative too.
