rbenv install command on Mac OS X

If rbenv is missing the install command, then you need to install ruby-build.

If you have Homebrew, then run:

brew install ruby-build

You can learn more about this in the README in the rbenv project here.

After you have ruby-build, you can run:

rbenv install 1.9.3-p194

… to install Ruby 1.9.3-p194 (if that’s the version you want).

This lack of an install command occurred in Mac OS X Lion 10.7 and Mountain Lion 10.8.
