Fyi: with today's CVS, when I run

    cd obj
    ../ruby/configure --prefix=/tmp/ruby
    make
    make install

some modules fail to install under /tmp/ruby, wanting to be installed under
/usr/local instead. Example:

/home/jos/src/ruby-cvs/ruby/lib/ftools.rb:139:in `mkdir': Permission denied - "/usr/local/lib/ruby/1.7/i386-freebsd5.0" (Errno::EACCES)
        from /home/jos/src/ruby-cvs/ruby/lib/ftools.rb:139:in `makedirs'
        from /home/jos/src/ruby-cvs/ruby/lib/ftools.rb:133:in `each'
        from /home/jos/src/ruby-cvs/ruby/lib/ftools.rb:133:in `makedirs'
        from -e:1
*** Error code 1

Stop in /home/jos/src/ruby-cvs/obj/ext/socket.

Those modules are:

    curses
    dbm
    etc
    pty
    readline
    socket
    syslog

If nobody has any idea I'll try to investigate tomorrow.

Thanks,
