Bug#636966: ruby1.9.1: should not bump shlibs with every upload

Package: ruby1.9.1
Severity: important

ruby blocks other transitions quite easily because it passes "-V" to
dh_mkshlibs.  This causes packages that are built against the ruby in unstable
to adopt strict dependencies on that particular upstream version.  Given that
we occassionally encounter FTBFS bugs with ruby, it would help a lot if you
could transition to symbol files instead (or any other way that doesn't
cause the upstream version to appear unnecessarily). 

Kind regards and thanks,
Philipp Kern
