I've also tested 1.3.40, 1.3.37 and 1.3.38.

As for x11/ruby-wxruby, 1.3.38 is happy with both ruby18 and ruby193.
But 1.3.40 had some problem AFAIR.  So, I agree to update to 1.3.38
but not 1.3.40.

Anyway, what about GNU radio?

Quote from devel/swig/Makefile:

# 1.3.37 has a bug where .py files are written to the directory of the
# .i file instead of where the output is supposed to go, and this
# breaks gnuradio.  Please try to contact before
# updating to 1.3.37.  See message on discuss-gnuradio:
# Message-Id: <>
# x11/ruby-wxruby-2.0.1 requires 1.3.32 for Ruby 1.8 and 1.3.37 for
# Ruby 1.9.  And SWIG 1.3.39 introduced some incompatibility with
# wxRuby, sigh.

I have devel/swig2 package localy.  What softwae would need swig 2.x?
