I solved this problem on my 5.5 servers in the following manner:

login: not_as_root_user
.  .  .
$ # Add rpmforge repos to yum per:
$ # http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/RPMForge
$ sudo yum install checkinstall
$ wget ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/ruby-1.8.7-p334.tar.gz
$ # to get latest or most desired source change version as required
$ tar -xzf ruby-1.8.7-p334.tar.gz
$ # expand source archives in /tmp
$ cd ruby-1.8.7-p334
$ # change to source directory
$ ./configure
$ # configure makefile for this host
$ make
$ # build the Ruby VM
$ checkinstall
$ # package ruby VM and suppport files as an RPM package
$ sudo yum localinstall \
    /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/ruby-1.8.7-p334-1.i386.rpm \
    --nogpgcheck
$ # install the rpm package from the checkinstall location
