Topic: Problem installing rmagick gem

I want to install the rmagick gem on my mac but got the following error

Bulk updating Gem source index for:
Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
configure: error: Can't install RMagick. Can't find Magick-config or GraphicsMagick-config program.

ERROR:  While executing gem ... (RuntimeError)
    ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
Gem files will remain installed in /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-1.15.7 for inspection.

Results logged to /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-1.15.7/gem_make.out

Where do I get Magick-config or GraphicsMagick-config and which one should I use?
