Has anyone resolved the problem where Ruby fails to use openssl on AIX?

After installing a ruby rpm package from Bull AIX with all dependencies I get the following error ...
gems/rubygems-2.0.7/lib/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:51:in `require': load failed - /opt/freeware/lib/ruby/1.9.1/powerpc-aix6.1.0.0/openssl.so.

Environment ...

AIX 6.1 TL 8 ...
ruby 1.9.3p362 (2012-12-25 revision 38607) [powerpc-aix6.1.0.0]
OpenSSL 0.9.8x 10 May 2012

Ruby does install, but when it needs openssl support it barks as well as rubygems ..

If anyone has compiled ruby from src I would be willing to follow your procedure if it resolves the above issue.

Try ldd /opt/freeware/lib/ruby/1.9.1/powerpc-aix6.1.0.0/openssl.so
