Reasonable, so we have to make lang/ruby18 ports to two ports -- one is for
pthread ruby and another is non-pthreaded ruby. Both ports must be installed
to the same system without any conflicts. Any volunteers, or we have to wait
until my superman, nork-san has a free time to do that? :-)
We have another problems here; what is the default ruby, pthreaded or
non-phtreaded. My vote goes to non-pthreaded, since "default to pthreaded"
may slow for users who doesn't require pthread.
