    This is the way that I build ruby from the latest svn sources. This
    allows me to have multiple versions and to compare the
    performance/behaviour of my builds against the stable version provided
    by my distro.

    cd ~/path/to/source
    /configure --prefix=/home/jayeola/installs --program-suffix=191
    make -j2 && make -j2 install


    How do you guys do it?

    This is correct, except ruby 1.8.6 and 1.8.7 clash, so if you want both
    of those give them a different --prefix
