Re: ruby1.8 build
In 126.96.36.1998-4 (and also in 188.8.131.52-1), the 1-hour testsuite timeouts
were removed, after the most problematic DRB tests had been turned off.
I guess that was too soon; at least one ruby1.8 test
(test_cd/TestFileUtils) still hangs often on kfreebsd-*:
> E: Caught signal 'Terminated': terminating immediately

At this stage I would think it is safest to reinstate the timeout on
ruby1.8. So far ruby1.9.1 doesn't seem to have this issue (perhaps
since its threading code was substantially rewritten).
