Just like you would install a ruby extension. You'd traditionally make  
a directory called ext/ and use an extconf.rb to create a makefile  
(using mkmf for configuration). For your specific needs, you could  
skip that and just store a makefile in the dir, system('./configure'),  
etc in extconf.rb.

There are also other external builders, but they're not so often used.
