Right. I now realize that we have been using tarballs from the GitHub mirror instead of the release tarballs because there were some issues with the release tarballs, such as modifying files shipped in the tarball on `make clean`, which was an problem for Debian.

So the issue for me here is that if you are working with the source tree directly, then you need an existing Ruby, what makes sense. So I should probably go back to using the release tarballs, and writing patches to fix the issues I have with it.

Thanks for the clarification.

Bug #12587: ruby released tarball require ruby
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/12587#change-59743

* Author: Akio Tajima
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: Nobuyoshi Nakada
* ruby -v: should be 2.3.1
* Backport: 2.1: UNKNOWN, 2.2: UNKNOWN, 2.3: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
I downloaded ruby-2.3.1.tar.bz2 into my brand new bash on windows.
I prepared gcc, autoconf etc but ruby itself because I know that ruby release tarball does not require ruby.
However, after hitting 'make', it stops while generating known_errors.inc because of 'executable host ruby is required. use --with-baseruby option.'.
