Several Ruby ports are disabled in the port Makefile when using Ruby 1.9.1 as the default version under FreeBSD because 1.9.1 includes the functionality the port added under 1.8.x.
HOWEVER, the versions included with 1.9.1 are a bit older than the ports versions. The BEST way, IMHO, to upgrade is to use the ports system. Hence, the ports in question need to be re-enabled to work under 1.9.1 for those ports where the port version is newer than the included version in 1.9.1.
The rake port is one of these.
The fix is a VERY SIMPLE Makefile change (see patch below)
Striving towards Ruby 1.9.1 being a first-class FreeBSD citizen,
Fix: PATCH to port Makefile:
Pass this PR to ruby@ rather than devel/rubygem-rake maintainer. Although
there is a patch in the PR for devel/rubygem-rake, it sounds like the
submitter sees this as a wider issue than just affecting that one port.
