I'm running PLD, and have installed ruby-1.8.2-2.20040906.4.  I looked
for a ruby-libs package (in poldek; using primarially
ftp://ftp.amd64.ac.pld-linux.org/dists/ac/PLD/amd64/PLD/RPMS/ ), and
failed to find one.  I thought the package ruby-static might have
them, but apparently not.

What am I missing here, to get the ruby headers?
