/bin/sh: ./miniruby: No such file or directory errror

Hi,
I am installing ruby 1.8.6 on feodra linux. I have download the
ruby-1.8.7.tar file. But whenever I am doing "make" it is giving an
error
"make[1]: *** [ossl_ssl.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
`/home/rails_setup/ruby-1.8.7-p72/ext/openssl'
make: *** [all] Error 1
"
And when I am doing "make install" I am getting error
"/bin/sh: ./miniruby: No such file or directory"

Can anyone please help me out to solve this?

Thanks,
Tushar
