I would recommend you to go with Ruby-1.8.* as the most applications are
still not 1.9.* aware (they might work but quite probably they won't).

In a related note, in 1.9.* the location of the installed headers had
changed in such way that is a little bit harder for applications to find
them during initial configuration and use them during compilation.

In any case if you want to proceed with the 1.9 branch you can use
something like:

cmake CXXFLAGS="${CXXFLAGS} -I/usr/include/ruby-1.9.1/     \
                   -I/usr/include/ruby-1.9.1/i686-linux/"  \
              CFLAGS="${CFLAGS} -I/usr/include/ruby-1.9.1/ \

That will work for make, not sure about cmake that Kde uses though.
