Actually I was removing the PKG_OPTION with the `-' to get it to work.

My hardware is i386. Very plain.

My suspicion at this point is that I'm running out of disk. I have some 
reports of this in dmesg. And /home is 94% before running the build. 
Does ruby-build-ri-db require ~512M ?? That's about what I have left. 
Subtract of course the extract of the source packages for ruby.

There are no "filesystem is full" errors, though, and I would expect to 
see that.
