I installed the latest ruby bindings from 


(The zeromq home page shows always the http link for visiting github by
browser, but for git clone you need .git - click on github on "HTTP
Read-Only" and you get the correct url for git clone)
make && make install works for me, no need for patching the examples.
(Ubuntu 9.10 and Debian/Lenny)

And a line ending with ';' like 

  s = ctx.socket(ZMQ::REP);

is not common, but valid ruby code in 1.8.7 and 1.9.1, so you don't need to
patch such things.
