REE has a special trick...

If you're trying to install REE with RVM, and you just, for example plug in the following

rvm install ree-2011.03

It doesn't work terrifically under OS X

It also serves as a local minima of functionality, in that it will get caught with the failure condition even if you remember to add something like:

rvm install ree-2011.03 -C --with-readline-dir=/usr/local

after having done the wrong thing.

You need to do the following:

rvm cleanup all
rvm install ree-2011.03 -C --with-readline-dir=/usr/local
