Be prepared to shell out quite a bit of money for the exorbant license fee, but:

Looks like maybe a job for PHP which has a nice class library for
doing PDF... Maybe somebody could port it to Rails?

Have a look at
<http://code.google.com/p/cnruby/wiki/RailsPluginActiveFPDF>. I have
no experience using it, but it looks up to date and the templates are
ok (as far as pdf generation goes..), e.g. <http://
cnruby.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/rails-plugins/active_fpdf/app/views/
pages/pdfs/show-06.rfpdf>.

Another option is to generate LaTeX documents using erb and post-
process these using pdflatex. Should be doable in less than 50 lines
of ruby, but IMO not practical unless you're comfortable with LaTeX.
