[fxruby-users] Problem with 1.4.2 on fc3

I've been trying to get fxruby 1.4.2 up and running, but unfortunately
with no succes so far.

My linux knowledge is still pretty basic (background in windows/c++/mfc
programming for a living... and further back on Amiga... but using linux
at home and for some none work-related projects) so I just hope I didn't
screw up something obvious.

I'm running fedora core 3, ruby 1.8.3 (2005-09-21) [i386-linux].

I installed from gems (after installing/compiling FOX itself) and get
the following:

irb(main):001:0> require 'rubygems'
=> true
irb(main):002:0> require 'fox14'
=> false

fox14.so is

/usr/local/lib contains (amongst others):
libCHART-1.4.so         libFOX-1.4.a   libFOX-1.4.so.0
libCHART-1.4.a   libCHART-1.4.so.0       libFOX-1.4.la
libCHART-1.4.la  libCHART-1.4.so.0.0.17  libFOX-1.4.so

gem check --alien gives me the following:
Performing the 'alien' operation
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Errno::ENOENT)
    No such file or directory
- /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fxruby-1.4.2/ext/fox14/scintilla_wrap.cpp

--> Does this mean I have to install scintilla (or fxscintilla ???)

I figured, since there's a fox14.so and a libFOX-1.4.so,
compiling/installing went ok, ar am I wrong here ?

Any help is mucho appreciated, thanks in advance!
