miniruby is basically the same as the ruby binary that we all know and  
love, but _before_ it is installed.
If you compile ruby (any MRI version) you will get this binary in the  
source root.

Note that is does not add lib/ to the load path etc, so you'll need to  
do add it yourself when needed. For instance:
$ ./miniruby -I./lib -e "require 'rbconfig'"
