ruby1.9.1 is known to be broken on ia64 (see #593141). It currently
builds only because the test suite is disabled on that architecture, but
the fact that other Ruby packages fail to build on ia64 doesn't surprise

Dear release team, at some point before the wheezy release, we need to
decide what to do with Ruby 1.9.X on ia64. It has been broken for
months, and hasn't seen any activity in Debian (#539141) or upstream

I think that removing it (with all its rev-depends) makes more sense
than shipping a known-broken Ruby.
