Newbie here. I am trying to install middleman on ubuntu.
I have installed all the dependencies that I found: slim,
zlib1g-dev, build-essential, ruby-dev, zlibc.
The makefile part failed. The mkmf log has compilation errors from
stat.h. Googling a bit with error, it appears to be related to multiple
versions of time.h in the include path. I did find a few versions, but
no idea where to change the include path or if this is the right thing
Here’s the error from the gem install.
Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: Error installing middleman:
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

*** extconf.rb failed ***
Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of necessary
libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more details. You
need configuration options.
I looked at the mkmf.log and it had errors related to stat.h
pkg-config --libs libffi

There are more errors all from stat.h file.
Here are the versions of time.h:
