RHEL5 comes with ruby 1.8.5 and puppetlabs has build a ruby 1.8.7 package (e.g. they plan to drop 1.8.5 support. I wonder where did you get 2.0.0p1?

You can see the supported ruby versions here: and I guess these dependencies are also expressed in the RPM specifications so you are unable to install the packages.
