The > may mean that there are an odd number of single-quotes on your

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.
