Thanks to all who replied. I strongly suggest that the documentation  
read

script/plugin install git://github.com/gnufied/backgroundrb.git

instead of

git clone git://github.com/gnufied/backgroundrb.git

Even if it is obvious to many, it wasn't obvious to me where the  
download was supposed to go...

Thanks again!
