Hello ruby community,

I have a curious behavior, but I suspect it's because of my lack of
knowledge about ruby.

I'm working on an Ubuntu machine, and I wanted the latest from ruby, so
I compiled it and make install'ed it. After some time using it with no
problem, I changed my mind because some ruby extensions are just easier
to install with apt-get. I've started to remove the ruby executable and
it's friends in /usr/local/bin, so that `which ruby` gives
me /usr/bin/ruby.

The problem is, that I still have the hand-compiled version hanging
around my system and it causes some problems. For example if I run irb :
irb(main):001:0> puts $LOAD_PATH
/usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8
/usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i386-linux
/usr/local/lib/site_ruby
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-linux
.
=> nil

Do you know how to remove the compiled ruby version, or make that the
debian package overrides the old configuration ?

Also it would be nice if ruby's Makefile would support `make uninstall`.

Please answer me fastly because, I'm eager to have some fun with ruby :)

Cheers and have a nice day,
  zimba
