Obvisouly I want post-install.rb to write in ./ipkg, as setup.rb does.
What is post-install.rb trying to do?

I am trying to prepare a ruby-gems package for the iPAQ (armv4l
architecture, linux familiar distro)

$ uname -a
Linux chmeee 2.6.14.2 #7 PREEMPT Sat Nov 19 23:16:29 CET 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
$ cd iPAQ/Ruby
$ ls
ruby-1.8.5/           # contains functional, cross-compiled Ruby for arm
rubygems-0.9.0/
$ cd rubygems-0.9.0/
$ ruby -I ../ruby-1.8.5 -rfake -rrbconfig setup.rb config
[...]
$ ruby -I ../ruby-1.8.5 -rfake -rrbconfig setup.rb install --prefix=./ipkg
[...]
As of RubyGems 0.8.0, library stubs are no longer needed.
Searching $LOAD_PATH for stubs to optionally delete (may take a while)...
...done.
No library stubs found.
