I'm happy with the older ruby 1.8.4 which I have for my Zaurus
SL-C1000.  I can finally get rubygems up and running and with that
many other gems.. but I cannot get ncurses working.

This is because ncurses is expecting the ruby development libraries,
which I cannot find anywhere.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I could get enough of a
ruby-devel installed to get ncurses working?
