Thanks for the information Mathieu!

As for the above, I'd give a not-very-experienced-with-Linux answer.

I encountered this problem right off and the error appeared on the
console.  It was pretty obvious that configure wasn't finding ruby,
which I had just installed, so the question became why.

Doing a find on ruby quickly revealed where it was and that it was
called ruby1.8, so the likely fix was to change the line to:

#! /usr/bin/env ruby1.8

...and that worked.

So, in short, I'd leave it alone.  I'd assume most people that are
capable of compiling a source package should be able to deal with this
issue.  Otherwise I guess you have to write a little shell script that
would go out and find ruby and paste the correct name in the file...
