Description

Often as maintainer of RVM I have to work with multiple ruby patches, but it's hard to tell what patches were used for compiling ruby. As a temporary solution I have started using a file patches.list in the root of source and installation directory. It would be nice if Ruby would include this list also in RbConfig::CONFIG.

Here is example content of the file I have for ruby-1.9.3-p362:

ruby-multilib
segfault_fix_7629

If that would be implemented I could understand if it would be required the files to be URLs to online patches which can be easily downloaded and analyzed.
