In reference to #40, will be great if rake-compiler supports LOCAL option pointing to a Ruby source checkout/clone instead of using archived packages.

rake-compiler cross-ruby LOCAL=/path/to/ruby-source

@blackwinter blackwinter tasks/bin/cross-ruby.rake: Support Subversion checkout.
Bleeding edge versions of Ruby cannot be downloaded as tarballs. Provide the option to use an SVN checkout instead.

This has come up before (#40), but was rejected in favour of a local source tree (#41). The latter has never been implemented, though.

Example: `rake-compiler cross-ruby VERSION=2.1.2 SVN=branches/ruby_2_1`
