rake clean; rake ; rake install

Feel like such a nube/dweeb for asking but…

Background - I follow redis, redis-rb, and phpredis on github, bleeding edge, trunk.

With redis I type make clean; make - then I’m good to go

With phpredis i type make clean; make; make install - then I’m good to go (maybe restart apache2)

What are the steps for making redis-rb from source, installing in the system, etc.? Things like rake clean and rake install don’t work…
