I'm having trouble finding a list of the packages available for PLD Linux
(I'm just not all that familiar with that distro), but for a lot of distros
the header files are off in a separate package with a name like "ruby-devel"
or the like. There's often a distinction between the basic runtime support
package (i.e. the interpreter and standard libraries -- just what you need
to run Ruby programs) and the developer support package (which would
additionally include the header files).

Is there maybe a way to search through PLD's packages for the one that
contains the file "ruby.h"? That might be a way to pin it down.
