Backport #8388: baseruby issue on OpenIndiana / Oracle Solaris 11.x
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8388#change-39257

Target version: 


When compiling ruby-2.0.0-p0 on OpenIndiana / Oracle Solaris 11.x (both amd64),

make/gmake fails with miniprelude.c and turns out:
executable host ruby is required.  use --with-baseruby option

the means of --with-baseruby has a very poor explanation, especially for someone like me who's very new to ruby.
The doc should mention, that baseruby is a the path to an already on the system existing ruby binary.

However, the above error message origins from different file owner/group memberships after an untar of the source package.

RESOLUTION:
--------------------------------
after untar issue: chown -R <user>:<group> <ruby-x.x.x-src-dir>

The above affects Issue #3008 and makes omitting Christians's touch command, as the chown-cmd updates the file inode information as well.


I can confirm a successful ruby-2.0.0 amd64 build on OpenIndiana and have released a Ruby IPS package in our repository at www.openindiana.co.uk
