Sorry, looks like either installation instructions have changed since I installed it, or I misremembered. I'm pretty sure the system-wide install instructions are new though.
On the maintainability of Ruby

Have you never downloaded a tarball, untarred it, and run ./configure; make; make install before? I don't really see the difference between this and that. And if you want, you can download the script, inspect it first, and then run it; there's no reason to follow the directions exactly. My point is that RVM doesn't depend on Ruby or RubyGems as it is just a collection of shell scripts to make it easier for you to manage several copies of Ruby and RubyGems.
./configure; make; make install
