Hmm, you meant sysutils/ruby-libnotify?

I would like to suggest to remove this ruby-libnotify because:

- no "Required by" pkgsrc users

- upstream is inactive since 2012 (i.e. no updates after Ruby 2.0 release) 

- it has hardcoded Config::CONFIG["sitearchdir"] path so
  won't support gem'fied glib even with the native gem

- it looks there is a more active alternative for users who actually need
  libnotify functions

Or should I still put kludge to current one to pacify builds?
