JRuby versions prior to 1.6 did not support Ruby C extensions, and even in 1.6 the support is still "in development" and considered experimental. As of 1.7, it has been disabled and will likely be removed.

This page lists common C extensions and non-C alternatives you can use to replace them.

Please add to this list with your findings.
