ia64 is no longer an official Debian architecture, what means that
issues on ia64 are not considered blockers for a Debian release. As the
Debian ruby maintainer, I no longer care about ia64 myself.

However, there is still a group of porters who do care about it, and as
long as they are testing it and providing me patches, I'm happy to apply
them. In fact, I have just made a new upload to Debian that applies an
ia64-specific patch.

ia64 porter team, you probably want to comment on the issue that Samuel
linked to:
