optimal ruby rails version for cucumber

After the excellent presentation I tried to revisit the railscast only to find I had fubarred my ruby install. (I may have played with cucumber under windows before) I was running 1.9.1 instead of leopard stock (1.8.6). I whacked my source install although I'm not convinced it was the source of my original woe (it kills me there's no make uninstall):
via

sudo rm /usr/local/bin/{ruby,irb,gem}
sudo rm /usr/local/lib/libruby-static.a
sudo rm -r /usr/local/lib/ruby/

reinstalled gems for the stock ruby,cucumber and hit a problem Josh had.

I cured this by re-running script/generate cucumber. It's working but complaining about my libxml2 version.
cucumber features:
HI. You're using libxml2 version 2.6.16 which is over 4 years old and has
plenty of bugs. We suggest that for maximum HTML/XML parsing pleasure, you
upgrade your version of libxml2 and re-install nokogiri. If you like using
libxml2 version 2.6.16, but don't like this warning, please define the constant
I_KNOW_I_AM_USING_AN_OLD_AND_BUGGY_VER­SION_OF_LIBXML2 before requring nokogiri.

I think I can fix this here.

Anyway, I don't mind hacking stuff, but thought I'd poll the group for what versions of things they are running, and any more speed bumps I might run into. I was hoping to revisit textmate on my old PPC mac and eventually get a new laptop, but at this rate I might as well go back to debian, xmonad and emacs ;)

I'd like to try 1.9.1 again, maybe ruby version manager?

Cheers.
