On 1.36, line 569 of configure.in was changed from

   sitedir='${prefix}/lib/ruby/site_ruby'
to
   sitedir="${prefix}/lib/ruby/site_ruby"

This then messes up config.h:

     #define RUBY_SITE_LIB "${prefix}/lib/ruby/site_ruby"
     #define RUBY_SITE_LIB2 "${prefix}/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.5"
     #define RUBY_PLATFORM "i686-linux"
     #define RUBY_ARCHLIB "/tc/usr/lib/ruby/1.5/i686-linux"
     #define RUBY_SITE_ARCHLIB "${prefix}/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.5/i686-linux"

And so $: now contains:

     dave[ruby/ruby 12:28:11] ruby -e 'p $:'
     ["${prefix}/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.5/i686-linux",
     "${prefix}/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.5",
     "${prefix}/lib/ruby/site_ruby",
     "/tc/usr/lib/ruby/1.5/i686-linux", "/tc/usr/lib/ruby/1.5", "."]

I didn't want to patch configure.in back, because presumably the
change was made for a reason.
