The problem with the Ruby in OSX 10.2 is that it's just an application, 
that is, it's missing both libruby.a and libruby.dylib, and so 
gridflow.pd_darwin cannot embed the Ruby interpreter within PureData.

In OSX 10.3 and 10.4, the situation may be different, but I don't recall 
what it is. Anyhow, I think I recall that one has to install XCode to get 
Ruby, right? Does Pd.app already require XCode? I only have OSX 10.2 so 
someone else will have to look into it.
