Due to ftools being deprecated in Ruby 1.9.1 (See http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/show/1401), install.rb for facter will not run properly without modifications.
Attached is a patch that should let facter use ftools if it is available or use fileutils if ftools cannot be found.
I have tested installing facter 1.5.6 with this patch using Ruby 1.9.1p243 on a Debian Lenny box
