At least for ree-1.8.7-2011.03 the installer is executable. By making this change, you can now install REE with rvm on a system with glibc 2.14. I don't know how to fix the underlying issue, but to install you can: 1. Run `rvm install ree` 2. Wait for it to fail. 3. Fix the broken files with: cd ~/.rvm/src/ree-1.8.7-2011.03/source/ext/dl rm callback.func touch callback.func ruby mkcallback.rb >> callback.func rm cbtable.func touch cbtable.func ruby mkcbtable.rb >> cbtable.func 4. Re-run `rvm install ree` and the REE files will not be re-extracted, so your changes to callback.func and cbtable.func will persist.
