Doesn't really matter. Now that the configure files can find ruby 1.9.x, the package fails to build. Bug report 735 submitted.

My partial patch fixes the configure files and a few header file location declarations, but there is serious breakage because some header files no longer exist in 1.9.x, such as env.h. Somebody with ruby expertise will have to help with finishing the patch. :(

I don't see any obvious configure option such as --without-ruby to avoid that process.

There is too much breakage with building koffice. Koffice needs serious attention before R14 is released if that package is going to be sold as a light weight office suite.

I really wanted to build the package and start testing kword in a serious manner.

Sometimes ya stick around and fight like hell. Other times ya walk away thoroughly beaten and lick your wounds. I give up trying to build koffice. :)
