No, those are part of miniruby, later in the make process you should
see "compiling syck".

That's the one that maybe didn't complete properly.

Can you indicate which version of GCC you have? maybe this is
something that can be related to Ruby itself and not RubyGems.

Please try in the console (irb)

require 'yaml'
a = [1,2,3]
puts a.to_yaml

The output should be:
- 1
- 2
- 3
