You certainly installed FOX, before installing FXRuby.
FOX built a couple of executables (don't ask me where I'm on a Mac),  
by me they are in /usr/local/src/tests/ControlPanel
/usr/local/src is where I put the FOX source code to compile it.
I have no idea if the tests applications are installed automatically

It does not help much, but it may explain your problem.
