what's the meanding of the different subdirectories which ar part of
$: resp. $LOAD_PATH?

I suppose a subdirectory "1.8" is for ruby-1.8-modules only, the
"x86_64-linux" directory is special for that architecture a.s.o., but
what is a difference between "lib/site_ruby" and "lib/ruby"? Where
should I put my self written modules?

i think the difference is suppose be between built-in and add-on
installed via the

   ruby install.rb


   ruby extconf.rb && make && sudo make install


then gems does it's own thing.  sigh...
