Sorry, dunno much about debian packages. I have heard that the debian
packagers broke ruby up into a number of packages that all have to be
installed (but this may be an ugly rumor, or I may just be wrong).
I usually just build from source on linux, and only bother with
prepackaged ruby on windows.
