Here are the commands I used to compile the required libraries and programs for RMagick to work on Mac OS X 10.5. It is largely the same as this article with slight adjustments. After completing the process I dumped my history.

Before you can execute these commands, you MUST HAVE

Begin by creating a folder to hold the src.

cd ~
mkdir src
cd src

wget

I like wget, which I use in the commands below. To start compile that or replace the wget command with curl -O.

curl -O http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-latest.tar.gz
tar -zxvf wget-latest.tar.gz 
cd wget-1.11/
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make
sudo make install
cd ..

FreeType

wget http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/freetype/freetype-2.3.5.tar.gz
tar zxvf freetype-2.3.5.tar.gz 
cd freetype-2.3.5
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make
sudo make install
cd ..

PNG Library

wget http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/libpng/libpng-1.2.25.tar.gz
tar -zxvf libpng-1.2.25.tar.gz 
cd libpng-1.2.25
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make
sudo make install
cd ..

JPEG Library

wget ftp://ftp.uu.net/graphics/jpeg/jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz
tar -zxvf jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz 
cd jpeg-6b/
ln -s `which glibtool` ./libtool
export MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.5
./configure --enable-shared --prefix=/usr/local
make
sudo make install
cd ..

TIFF Library

wget ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/libtiff/tiff-3.8.2.tar.gz
tar -zxvf tiff-3.8.2.tar.gz 
cd tiff-3.8.2
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make 
sudo make install
cd ..

GhostScript Fonts

wget http://superb-east.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/gs-fonts/ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11.tar.gz
tar -zxvf ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11.tar.gz 
sudo mkdir /usr/local/share/ghostscript
sudo mv fonts/ /usr/local/share/ghostscript/fonts/

ImageMagick

wget ftp://ftp.imagemagick.org/pub/ImageMagick/ImageMagick.tar.gz
tar zxvf ImageMagick.tar.gz 
cd ImageMagick-6.3.9/
export CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include
export LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib
./configure --prefix=/usr/local  --disable-static --with-modules --without-perl  --without-magick-plus-plus --with-quantum-depth=8  --with-gs-font-dir=/usr/local/share/ghostscript/fonts
make
sudo make install
cd ..
