Unable to run 'ruby script/console'

One the hassles of installing software via MacPorts and independent  
sites is having duplicate applications installed.
I started to look for all the ruby parts and found them distributed  
about the HD:

[/Users/Ric/workarea/ruby/shovell]which irb

[/Users/Ric/workarea/ruby/shovell]which ruby

[/Users/Ric/workarea/ruby/shovell]which rails

[/Users/Ric/workarea/ruby/shovell]ls /opt/local/bin/irb

Here we see multiple occurrences of irb; also found elsewhere.
So I deleted the others, keeping the one in /opt/local/bin where  
'ruby' is located.

... then tried again.

[/Users/Ric/workarea/ruby/shovell]ruby script/console
Loading development environment.

Moral to this story... avoid duplication.
