Thanks for the tips, Leonardo.

It works now. What did I do?

a - removed the ruby/rails installation by deleting the
directory .../.rbenv/versions/1.9.3-p0

b - restarting the installation from scratch

Note that I left all of Openssl installed. I guess that the cause for
the problem was that Openssl was installed AFTER Ruby was built.

The version is openssl.rb 25189 2009-10-02 12:04:37Z akr. Is this the
correct version?
This might be the ruby-openssl package, you need the plain openssl
package and also the dev files for openssl. If you're using a debian
based distro the package should be named openssl-dev.

How do I enforce a rebuild of Ruby? Because a possible cause of the
problem is that openssl was added after the installation of Ruby.
I'm not an rbenv user but try removing the installation and re install
it again. I know RVM caches the sources and you have to force the
re-configuration, but I don't know if rbenv does the same thing.
I know for sure ruby-build doesn't cache the sources and probably
rbenv wont, however, I cannot ensure that.

Hope it helps.
