Just saw this thread today...

If you (or anyone else) need to use IBM JDK and get that "-client"
error, you can pass "--noclient" to JRuby to disable that flag.
Normally we pass -client to the JVM because on Hotspot/OpenJDK (by far
the most widely used) it helps startup time a lot. Unfortunately it's
not a standard flag.
