My way to fix it was to just run it using ruby1.9, e.g. instead of


you'd do

   ruby1.9 configure

but obviously, in the long term, it's not a good idea.

Yes and no. I'd like to release whatever was done after version 9.14 and 
make sure it can run correctly with modern versions of Pd (that is, 
post-0.42). There are incompatibilities with >=0.43 that still aren't 
fixed, many years after the release of 0.43. Yet, I don't really do arts 
anymore. Once in a while, I open my guitar filter/accompanier patch and 
realise that it needs some help to get running and still is clunky. I'd 
enjoy some help.

BTW, don't you have write access to the svn, to commit your diff ? If not, 
I'll give you one. But I'll help you getting GridFlow running
