To follow up on this, I've now successfully tested the RDF::Raptor
plugin with Ruby 1.8.6, 1.8.7, 1.9.1 as well as with JRuby 1.4.0.

I've also figured out the platform-specific Raptor installation
procedure for all major Linux and BSD distributions; the instructions
are available in the README file, and copied below for your

    % [sudo] port install raptor             # Mac OS X with MacPorts
    % [sudo] fink install raptor-bin         # Mac OS X with Fink
    % [sudo] aptitude install raptor-utils   # Ubuntu / Debian
    % [sudo] yum install raptor              # Fedora / CentOS / RHEL
    % [sudo] zypper install raptor           # openSUSE
    % [sudo] emerge raptor                   # Gentoo Linux
    % [sudo] pkg_add -r raptor               # FreeBSD
    % [sudo] pkg_add raptor                  # OpenBSD / NetBSD

In addition to all this, I have verified that the RDF::Raptor plugin
works fine with at least as old a Raptor version as 1.4.16, such as is
still commonly found packaged in the more enterprise-oriented Linux

In short, making effective use of this plugin to enable RDF/XML and
Turtle parsing/serialization with RDF.rb should not be a problem on
any major Unix-based development or deployment platform.

See the code examples at http://rdf.rubyforge.org/raptor/ to get started.
