Ah ok. If Python made this their default, it must be fast enough.

I've just added something that prints Ruby's $: just before trying to load 
gridflow.so. The $: variable is an array of strings which is the path 
searched by Ruby for both .rb and .so files. It should contain some dirs 
figured out by gridflow.pd_darwin at startup, then the contents of 
RUBYLIB, then the ones hardcoded by "ruby/configure". Here I get:

Ruby's path = ["/home/matju/lib/pd/extra/gridflow/..", 
"/home/matju/lib/ruby/site_ruby", "/home/matju/lib/ruby/1.9", 
"/home/matju/lib/ruby/1.9/i686-linux", "."]

This is because I installed Ruby with --prefix=$HOME. My RUBYLIB 
environment variable is currently unset (I don't need it).

Oh ok. I've just replaced a few fprintf's by post's too.

Update and try again.
