A new version of ruby will be hitting the mirrors shortly. This is
not a version change. The updated binaries have been built with sun
studio 11 instead of gcc4.
This means that, by default, to compile native gems, you'll need
studio 11 installed at /opt/csw/studio/SOS11/. To facilitate sites
that would prefer not to drag studio 11 onto their machines (myself
included), I'm also shipping the rbconfig.rb file from the gcc4 build
and a tool to switch between the two. You can now use `cswrbconfig`
to switch between the SOS11 and GCC4 settings as desired.
Additionally, you can also add your own settings by installing a file
I've tested this update with previously compiled gems (mysql) and
found that they seemed ok. I hope that this update is painless, but I
wanted to make people aware of the change just in case. Please let me
know if you encounter any problems as a result of this update.
 To close a bug and to be more consistent with CSW guidelines and
the perl/python CSW builds.
