I was able to find reference to a similar bug in Ubuntu where the fix

Isn’t Ubuntu a Linux Distro?
Is mkmf.rb a post-1.8.2 file, or is this a bug?
What’s the best fix?
Which version of RH are you using, and which packaging method are you

Here’s a partial of how Fedora breaks up it’s RPM’s
Being that RH and FC are broken from the same branch, this might give

I wouldn’t worry about filing a bug on this. They made an architectural
decision to proceed this way on purpose. They are aware of it being
broken up into several units, and a bug report would just be closed out
as not a bug.
If you personally don’t like it that way, then I would agree with
building from source, but a simple package install should get you going.
