I'm trying to use pkgsrc on Slackware 10.1 and I have a slight problem 
with ruby. With the patch suggested before on the tech-pkg list 
(,; included as 
attachment "ruby18-base_bdb.diff") I get following result (some related 
information appended):

It is possible to fix this with the patch "ruby18-base_bison.diff" (as 
attachment) applied between "bmake configure" and "bmake build", but I 
don't know if this is the right fix (masking the symptoms instead of 
healing the disease). :)
