[[Ruby 1.9:]] --enable-load-relative broken on systems with /lib64
Trying to build ruby with
--enable-load-relative on system where libraries are by default stored in lib64.
This leads to this error on most ruby operations, with minimal example
ruby -e 'p :a':
<internal:gem_prelude>:1:in `require': cannot load such file -- rubygems.rb (LoadError) from <internal:gem_prelude>:1:in `<compiled>'
It works when I prefix it with
RUBYLIB=/home/mpapis/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p194/lib64/ruby/:/home/mpapis/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p194/lib64/ruby/1.9.1/:/home/mpapis/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p194/lib64/ruby/1.9.1/x86_64-linux/ /home/mpapis/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p194/bin/ruby -e 'p :a'
lib64 path was not respected, I have prepared the attached patch and compiled using it but it did not helped.
The only thing I could use to fix it was compiling using additional configure flag:
so the default detected
lib64 was overwritten and it all worked fine.
The check for the libdir is:
Under this address should be a link to vagrant box for system that has lib64 as default: https://github.com/jtperry/OpenSuseVagrantBox
The best solution would be to fix loading libraries from the custom paths, but if it is not possible it would be also good enough to force libdir=.../lib if not specified by user.
