There is currently no plan to use RubySpec with MacRuby, though I  
would be very interested to run MacRuby against a 1.9 RubySpec suite.

Last time I checked (a couple of months ago) no 1.9 suite was  
available yet. I do not follow the RubySpec project to know if the  
situation has changed since, but googling a little bit did not reveal  
more updates.

Ideally both MacRuby and Ruby 1.9 (YARV) should be covered by the same  
RubySpec suite, so if one is developed for Ruby 1.9 we should be able  
to reuse it for MacRuby. We could then extend it for MacRuby-only  

If you have any news about this or willing to help the RubySpec guys  
by working on the 1.9 suite, please let me know. I would be glad to  
ship a 1.9 suite as part of MacRuby.
