I am using the ruby-stable-snapshot on a more or less regualr basis
on a Gentoo Linux system. I do not install ruby via Gentoo’s emerge
Suddenly all my ruby scripts stops to work.
I noticed, that ruby was not installed as “ruby” but as “ruby18”.
My script’s hash-bangs always are “#! /usr/bin/ruby”.
How can I convince configure to install ruby as ruby?
I tried to set an environment variable “RUBY_INSTALL_NAME” but it
does not work (yes, it was “exported”

PS: May be it would be an idea to name the archive on rubys
ftp-server like its contents:
snapshot.tgz —> ruby-snapshot.tgz
stable-snapshot.tgz —> ruby-stable-snapshot.tgz
…one (at least me downloads a LOT of snapshots, source archives
and so on. If not unpacked, configured,compiled, installed
right directly after download - it is confusing to have archives
“without name” like: source.tgz, stable-source.tgz, archive.zip,
“That’s four small chars for a ftp-server, one giant leap for
