Doh! /dev/ was a bad choice for an example directory name :)
The actual paths are more like:
/afs/dev/ruby/core/1.6.8/install/.exec/ia32.linux2.4.libc6/bin
and
/afs/prod/ruby/SUB/core/1.6.8/.exec/ia32.linux2.4.libc6/bin

The install issue is independent of AFS, and there's an awful lot of
distracting noise in those paths, so I picked something a bit simpler that
showed the same variation. Sorry for the confusion :)

Cheers,
Mike
