Yeah, that's talking about looking for the include files (e.g. in 
/usr/include/fox-1.6, /usr/local/include/fox-1.6, etc.) so that it can 
build the FXRuby extension.

Right, the FXRuby installation process doesn't attempt to automatically 
"fix" your ld.so.conf file settings that control how shared libraries 
are loaded.

Have you filed a bug report about this yet? I'm not remembering this 
one and I don't (think) I see it in the list at:


If you're pretty sure it's some kind of FXRuby bug, please do go ahead 
and file a bug report for it.
