but the command export

has no effect.

Because it's not correct! You see that at least a / is missing.

For bash export means, put this name and its associated value into the environment of this bash instance. All processes derived from this shell will inherit this value.

The correct syntax for the export statement in ~/.bashrc would be, now that I know of /usr/local/bin/ruby:

        export PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH"

The beginning is set in etc/profile, but I don't know how to
overide the write protect.

You would need super-user access. For example launch in Terminal 'sudo emacs -nw'. Then you could change /etc/profile, but that's not the right solution! Every time you install an update of Mac OS X this file might get changed ... Do it for your account in ~/.bashrc, and do it like above re-using the old PATH value.

I am a little lost. Do I need to report a bug? If so what
information do I need to give as to the fix? The one about
changing the path with environment.plist?

To show it's a bug caused by DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH you would need to rename /Applications/ lisp/site-start.d/carbon-emacs-builtin.aspell.le to the old name and comment the unset from .bashrc, launch Carbon Emacs, and see whether Ruby still works. In the beginning you had two problems: wrong PATH (therefore only the wrong ruby programme found) and possibly inappropriate setting of DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH. Now the PATH is corrected. The question left, is whether ruby still works correctly although DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH is pointing into the wrong direction. If you find the answer, please send it to me and I'll try to discuss this topic with the makers of Japanese Carbon Emacs in their list.
