First Attempt at Mongrel on Ubuntu

Re: [ANN] Mongrel -- Ruby Licensed Release

First problem: Need to install make and gcc.  'sudo aptitude install make gcc' is necessary for a gem install of mongrel.  It looks like mongrel is compiled from C to assist with speed.

If you don't have make installed, you won't see any errors during the mongrel install until you try running it within a rails project.

/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mongrel- `register': undefined method `resolve' for nil:Mongrel::URIClassifier (NoMethodError)

So I installed make and gcc and reinstalled mongrel through 'sudo gem install mongrel'.
