For the ruby issue:

if I remove the TEXFONTMAPS environment setting from tex.rb, it works on  
my machine. I don't know if it can be a fix working on any platform:

     def fixbackendvars(backend)
         if backend then
             report("fixing backend map path for #{backend}") if  
             ENV['backend']     = backend ;
             ENV['progname']    = backend unless validtexengine(backend)
             #ENV['TEXFONTMAPS'] =  
             report("unable to fix backend map path") if
