Help compiling shoes

Due to recent concerns I took the (perhaps rash) step of purging my apt
installed version of Ruby and installed it from source to achieve patch
level 22 before it was available through the repository. All is well
with my system now, except that I cannot re-compile Shoes correctly.
When I try to make it, I get:

CC -o dist/libshoes.so
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lruby
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [dist/libshoes.so] Error 1

Compiling software via make is not one of my strengths, but I have tried
sudo ldconfig and make -I/usr/local/include to no avail. It seems that
Ruby or a library cannot be found, but I’m unsure how to proceed. Any
suggestions or tips would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Howard

CC -o dist/libshoes.so

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lruby

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

déjà vu,

got a similar problem and i’d like to quotes _why’s answer…

And it doesn’t have the shared lib installed.

You’ll need to rebuild Ruby to include the shared lib:

$ ./configure --enable-shared
$ make && make install

I’ll look into switching to static linking if the shared lib is
missing. This is very common.

Exactly the problem, of course. Thanks to you, botp (and _why, too) for
the solution.

Sincerly,
Howard
