I get error during make of version 1.8.4. while trying to install in the
following environment:

gcc main.o  libruby-static.a -ldl -lcrypt -lm   -o miniruby -g -O2

gcc: `-b' must come at the start of the command line

make: *** [miniruby] Error 1

AIX 5.2

gcc 3.3.2

GNU make 3.8

Has anyone seen this before. I'm a pre-newbe so I'm not sure this is the
correct mail list for this topic. If not please let me know where I
should go.

Hi Scott,

You just missed a discussion on this very same topic a couple of days
There are two write-ups on getting Ruby to compile on AIX, one I
wrote and the other by Daniel Sheppard. Here is the link to the
discussion you missed:

Hope this helps!
