Issue #16198 has been reported by qyliss (Alyssa Ross).

----------------------------------------
Bug #16198: Packaging regression in ruby-2.4.8
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16198

* Author: qyliss (Alyssa Ross)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: 2.4.8
* Backport: 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
In the ruby-2.4.8 tarball, the ruby-2.4.8/gems directory does not
contain the extracted default gems.  This is a change from 2.4.7, and is
also not the case in 2.5.7.  I would not expect this to change for a
teeny release, and suspect it was a packaging error.

Compare the output of `tar tf ruby-2.4.8.tar.gz ruby-2.4.8/gems` with
`tar tf ruby-2.4.7.tar.gz ruby-2.4.7/gems` and you'll see what I mean.

This broke our packaging scripts in Nixpkgs, and I suspect it will
affect other packagers as well.
