Stuck: Ruby bundle install error

Hi guys. For some reason I can't install the bundle on Mac OS 10.9 Mavericks.

I get this error " An error occurred while installing bcrypt (3.1.7), and Bundler cannot continue. Make sure that gem install bcrypt -v '3.1.7' succeeds before bundling. "

Apologies if this was asked before.

You may have configured Bundler to install gems into a sub-directory of your project rather than the root directory. This might be a reason that the error is occurring.
