...here's what I'm now getting at -stderr:

tried /Users/tigital/puredataDev/gridflow/gridflow.pd_darwin and  
gridflow.pd_darwin found itself in /Users/tigital/puredataDev/gridflow
we are using Ruby version 1.9.0
DIR = "/Users/tigital/puredataDev/gridflow"
Ruby's path = ["/Users/tigital/puredataDev/gridflow/..", "/Users/ 
tigital/puredataDev/gridflow", "/Users/tigital/puredataDev/gridflow/ 
optional/rblti", "/Users/tigital/puredataDev/gridflow/lib/ruby/ 
site_ruby/1.9", "/Users/tigital/puredataDev/gridflow/lib/ruby/

...good ideas, but I'd tried some of those AND just "gridflow", but  
still no love :-(  But I hadn't tried .bundle, and when I did, I got  
the following:

[LoadError] [Failed to load /Users/tigital/puredataDev/gridflow/ 
ERROR: Cannot load GridFlow-for-Ruby (gridflow.so)

...so, my next move will be to make sure we're compiling this as a  
proper bundle...
