Comment(by lsansonetti@…):

 I was able to install the dm-core gem on my environment but it cannot be
 loaded after because bigdecimal has not been implemented yet.

 $ macgem install dm-core
 WARNING:  Installing to ~/.gem since
           /usr/bin aren't both writable.
 WARNING:  You don't have /Users/lrz/.gem/macruby/1.9.0/bin in your PATH,
           gem executables will not run.
 Successfully installed extlib-0.9.13
 Successfully installed addressable-2.1.0
 Successfully installed dm-core-0.10.1

 $ macruby -r rubygems -e "require 'dm-core'; p 42"
 core:in `raise:': no such file to load -- bigdecimal (LoadError)
         from core:in `require:'

 It looks like there is something wrong in your environment. It would be
 interesting to investigate where exactly in rubygems this "Illformed
 requirement [nil]" exception is raised.

 Also, could you try the following: `VM_DISABLE_RBO=1 macgem install dm-
 core' and let us know if it still fails.
