[Ironruby-core] Chiron on linux

the chiron /b command works on mac and windows but AFAIK it doesn't on linux based systems.

On debian and ubuntu systems often there is a package xdg-open installed which provides the same functionality as start on windows and open on mac.
So if you check for the existence of xdg-open the experience on linux can be similar to the one on the other OS'es.

Ruby code:
system "xdg-open #{chiron_url}" if `which xdg-open`.chomp != ""
