I fought with the same thing, but since I've used cucumber to test iOS apps, there was no need to run it under MacRuby. It's a pain to switch between rubies all the time, but for now I run cucumber features under mri, and my specs under MacRuby.

It would really be lovely to fix the issues causing cucumber to fail. It's been awhile, but the last time I tried it segfaulted when trying to run a feature or something. This was after forking cucumber, gherkin, etc to get past a few earlier issues with the gems themselves.
