The target is needed to change the install name path of your  
executable so that it can look for MacRuby.framework inside the bundle

Do you get anything in the console?

Also, what if you try to start it from the command-line?

   $ ./Path/To/Foo.app/Contents/MacOS/Foo

This looks like a problem with the appscript code, but maybe there is  
a bug in MacRuby too... I will have a look (this macruby-appscript  
library looks very cool!).
