[MacRuby-devel] Cannot compile RJB using MacRuby nightly

It's a wrapper to the Saxon XSLT2 processor, which is the only XSLT2 free implementation I've been able to find. I'm building it to avoid triggering command line processes and to get access to the full API.
RJB in MacRuby is a test to see how much can I reuse and modularize code.
RJB, in reality, it's mostly C, not Java, and there is no problem pacakging that along with JAR files for MRI, but I gather that MacRuby maybe have some issues compiling native code from gems if they are not coded targeting Objective-C specifically. The thing is, as Nokogiri compiled and installed successfully, I assumed it would be the aame for RJB.

It has a dependency on dl.h, a header that I have seen in MRI 1.9.2 and 1.9.3 inside a 1.9.1 folder (/Users/tnarik/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p125/include/ruby-1.9.1/ruby/dl.h), but not in MacRuby.
