Sure, it's straightforward because you don't have dependencies to worry about unless you want to add certain features or widget sets. You need the GCC extension from MyDSL as well as the source.
Then it's a standard ./configure; make; make install. That compiles the defaults. You can run the various README/INSTALL files (I don't recall what all it has off the top of my head) or
|Code Sample |
|./configure --help | less|
to get the compile options (you add those to ./configure).
If you're running a frugal install, use the UNC version of GCC (so you can unload it after you compile) and set the prefix wherever you have a persistent partition (such as home or opt). If you have and want to use (for example) /mnt/hda3/opt, you'd add a flag like "--prefix=/mnt/hda3/opt/ruby186" when you run ./configure.
