installing the oniguruma gem on debian/ubuntu

‘sudo gem install ultraviolet’ produced a bunch of build errors (ending in ‘make: *** [oregexp.o] Error 1
‘) for me on ubuntu hardy. I tracked it down to the ‘oniguruma’ gem not building.

sudo apt-get -y install libonig-dev
sudo gem install oniguruma

All better.
