So I have the less than enjoyable of installing Ruby on a PA-RISC HPUX
box - HPUX never makes it easy!

I managed to get Ruby 1.8.4 installed from the HPUX ports site, but in
the installation guide it says they disabled pthreads.

Now when I attempt to install rubygems, its complains about not being
able to require 'thread' as part of its installation.

Does anyone know if there is a way to get Rubygems installed without
pthread support, or does anyone have a recpie to install Ruby 1.8.4 or
newer on HPUX with pthreads enabled?
