 Building Ruby, Rails, LightTPD, and MySQL on Tiger

Nice tutorial on how to get these apps installed on your Mac.

"What follows are updated instructions for manually building and installing Ruby, Ruby on Rails, MySQL, and LightTPD on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). Compiling and installing these tools this way is well worth the effort, as the end result delivers an easy-to-upgrade, system-independent, stand-alone development platform that is impervious to potential problems that can be caused by system updates, operating system upgrades, etc. These issues and additional background information about why one might roll their own tools in this fashion is detailed in the article, Using /usr/local/, which could be considered a prerequisite for this task."
