[Reopening #39 on a clean branch.]

I wrote a definition for the final version of REE 1.8.6 (20090610). Unfortunately some of us are still using it in the wild. I thought it would be a common-enough version to merit inclusion. (Probably installed more places than MRI 1.8.6 these days.)

There are just two significant differences from REE 1.8.7:

  • Downgrade Rubygems to the most recent compatible version (1.4.2)
  • Create a directory that REE's insane installer expects, but doesn't get created with --dont-install-useful-gems (otherwise the installer crashes)

Hopefully this is helpful :)
