[more data]

For the 03-18-2004 snapshot I am getting:

  gcc -g -O2    -rdynamic  main.o libruby-static.a -ldl -lcrypt -lm   -o miniruby
  ./lib/fileutils.rb:837: [BUG] Segmentation fault
  ruby 1.9.0 (2004-03-17) [ia64-linux]

where lib/fileutils.rb has,

     836     FileUtils::OPT_TABLE.each do |name, opts|
     837       next unless opts.include?('verbose')
     838       module_eval(<<-EOS, __FILE__, __LINE__ + 1)
     839         def #{name}(*args)

The 03-18.2004 1.6 snapshot works!
