Sensu Plugin Problem

Encountered problem when installing sensu-plugin

    $ gem install sensu-plugin --no-rdoc --no-ri
    /usr/bin/ruby1.9.1 extconf.rb
    /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `require': cannot load such file -- mkmf (LoadError)
            from /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `require'
            from extconf.rb:1:in `<main>'

This is the solution: use the ruby runtime embedded in sensu

    $ /opt/sensu/embedded/bin/gem install sensu-plugin
