Hmmm. I don't know what to make of that (other than it's coming from
RubyGems during the installation process). Needless to say, it's not
happening here when I try to install.

It's probably getting the right version, but you can confirm by
putting a print statement (or whatever) in your FXRuby program that
prints the result of calling "Fox.fxrubyversion". This should return
the string "1.6.18".
Hope this helps,
