[MacRuby-devel] MacRuby 0.5 beta

Just judging by the initial round of twitter / blog postings, the #1  
problem people are having trouble with 0.5B1 is obtaining LLVM.    
Antonio has already put together a nice blog posting about it (http://antoniocangiano.com/2009/10/08/getting-macrubys-compiler-to-work/ 
), but shouldn't his instructions be on the MacRuby blog, seeing as  
how Laurent's announcement is the first thing many people are going to  
see?  Even better, maybe an LLVM package to go along with MacRuby,  
also linked to on the site?  Given that you need a very specific (e.g.  
recent, from trunk) version of LLVM for MacRuby to work at all, this  
seems pretty reasonable.  If the instructions were "just go grab llvm  
2.6" then I might feel differently.
