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.
