FreeBSD 7 and Rails: undefined method `camelize' for "app":String

Okay, thought it was about time I had Rails installed on one of my FreeBSD boxes. So off to ports I trundle, two seconds later and I have Rails installed. Right time for a quick test app:

[]$ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.7 (2009-04-08 patchlevel 160) [amd64-freebsd7]
[]$ rails -v
Rails 2.3.4
[]$ gem -v
[]$ rails test
undefined method `camelize' for "app":String

What - an error! But this is FreeBSD, everything just works! (well mostly). Okay looks rather like someone has missed out a dependency in the port. It would appear that Rails depends on the iconv libs: so a:

cd /usr/ports/convertors/ruby-iconv
make install clean

is required, then Rails works.
