Help to reproduce the bug (Was: Re: State of Ruby)
Copying to debian-powerpc mailing list. (Please Cc: me and/or the bug as
I'm not subscribed.)
Can anyone here help to reproduce this bug? Ruby 1.8 fails to build
packages with "stack level too deep" error on Debian PowerPC build
server (voltair), but works fine on Fumitoshi UKAI's Cube.
See more details below.

I think that is a separate bug, probably due to some error in
debian/rules, such as this:
ruby install.rb clean
make: ruby: Command not found
Anyway, in case of libdbi-ruby and mysql-ruby, for Ruby 1.6 packages,
1.6 libraries are loaded, and it builds successfully, and for Ruby 1.8
packages, 1.8 libraries are loaded and Ruby fails with stack level error:
ruby1.6 setup.rb config --with=dbi,dbd_pg,dbd_mysql,dbd_sqlite \
entering config phase...
ruby1.8 setup.rb config --with=dbi,dbd_pg,dbd_mysql,dbd_sqlite \
