Semms like make failed to compile ffi, which is a dependency of rubygame.

There's a newer version of ffi available (1.0.5), I just compiled it successfully on Arch 64 bits.
Give it a try :)

If it fails again, your system probably miss some toolchain components (gcc make bison fakeroot ?).

Hope it helps.
