No, the production box is Athlon64 X2 3800, the staging one i386 
(actually a Pentium 4 I had lying around). However the ruby libraries 
were built the same way:

sudo apt-get install ruby1.8 libzlib-ruby rdoc irb ruby1.8-dev 

On production:
#ruby -v
ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [x86_64-linux]

On staging:
#ruby -v
ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [i486-linux]
