What does "ruby -v" say?

# Not using an rs6k, but a powerpc powerbook.

Thanks Matz and Josh for checking. I just rebuilt ruby in a clean 
directory from latest nightly snapshot,

  # ruby -v
  ruby 1.6.2 (2000-11-10) [rs6000-aix4.3.2.0]

and still got the same error. :-(

Any suggestions for things to check out? Any way for non-expert to trace 
this? (I'll also try recompiling with the -O flag, which for some reason 
configure/make didn't use, and see if there is any difference.)
