Hi,

very nice work.  Are you (or someone else) also planning on rebasing the 
patches against 1.8.6 ? I've tried that myself but it didn't work very well 
(ruby test/runner.rb fails 3 tests on 0x2770, and segfaults when i use 0x4770,  
on x86_64 machine)

I also tried building on ppc64, with 0x4770 it wont even build, segfaults on 
launching miniruby:

gcc -O2 -g    -DRUBY_EXPORT -D_GNU_SOURCE=1  -L.  -rdynamic -Wl,-export-
dynamic   main.o  libruby-static.a -ldl -lcrypt -lm -o miniruby
./ext/purelib.rb:2: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.8.7 (2009-1-18 MBARI 7/0x4770 on patchlevel 72) [powerpc64-linux]
make: *** [.rbconfig.time] Aborted

With 0x2770 it builds & runs the same test suite with 6 failures & 1 error. 
(Although i'm not sure how much they are actually ruby's fault)
