This took a bit to track down so I thought I'd share.
After opkg install ruby-core (and others), proceed as follows.

##set some new env vars:
## (add these to your ~/.profile also so it works after reboot

export GEM_HOME='/opt/usr/lib/ruby/gems'
export GEM_PATH='/opt/usr/lib/ruby/gems'
export RUBYLIB='/opt/usr/lib/ruby/1.9'


##mv everything in mips-linux
cp -R /opt/usr/lib/ruby/1.9/mips-linux/* /opt/usr/lib/ruby/1.9/


## link in /usr/bin
ln -s /opt/usr/bin/ruby /usr/bin/ruby

## gem fails to work over softlink, dont know why.
cp /opt/usr/bin/gem /usr/bin/gem

Voila. Hope thats helpful.

...although "gem" doesn't work.

Code:
ERROR:  Error installing mechanize:

mkmf.rb can't find header files for ruby at /opt/usr/lib/ruby/include/ruby.h


Gem files will remain installed in /opt/usr/lib/ruby/gems/gems/unf_ext-0.0.7.1 for inspection.
