Ruby Gem install Json fails on Mavericks and Xcode 5.1 - unknown argument: '-multiply_definedsuppress' #528
Getting this error when trying to run boxen on Maverick and latest developer tools - same as this stackoverflow question (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/22352838/ruby-gem-install-json-fails-on-mavericks-and-xcode-5-1-unknown-argument-mul) which at this time is 3 hours old:
FWIW this doesn't seem to be a boxen specific issue, but rather an Apple f*cked up and released a developer code tools update which pretty much screws over alot of existing rubygems which require native compilation and use flags which used to raise a warning but now cause the compilation to fail outright. (Sorry for the run on sentence)
It's not just the json gem which fails - stackoverflow is littered with gem compilation issues after upgrading to XCode 5.1.
Don't upgrade if you haven't yet.
