Problem installing rubygems-0.8.11

I’m having an issue installing rubygems-0.8.11 on 2 different boxes
but get the same error on both. The first box is a host environment
where I am cross-compiling things for the arm-linux architecture. It
is a debian sarge box using the ruby1.8 package which is ruby-1.8.2.
I successfully cross-compiled ruby 1.8.4 for the arm-linux
architecture and it runs well on the embedded linux box.

On both boxes, when I run “ruby setup.rb” I get the following output
and error at the bottom which is identical on both boxes:

As of RubyGems 0.8.0, library stubs are no longer needed.
Searching $LOAD_PATH for stubs to optionally delete (may take a
No library stubs found.

hook /home/jhodapp/temp/rubygems-0.8.11/./post-install.rb failed:
uninitialized constant YAML::Syck::Resolver
Try ‘ruby setup.rb --help’ for detailed usage.

I have Syck installed…

I am not sure why I am getting this error and would like to resolve
it if possible.
