At least in the two cases above, this was a 2.4 specific change. The 
packages still build fine.

Lintian complains, though:

mod_ruby doesn't use the LDFLAGS passed in via apxs, though:
libapache2-mod-ruby: hardening-no-relro 

But I wonder if it would not be better to simply remove mod_ruby. Last 
upload 2008.
