I have not looked into this, but one of my friends says the basic
problem is that RUBY_DEFAULT_VER has changed, and thus the ruby 1.6
port only installs /usr/local/bin/ruby16, and does not also install

One quick fix for this would be to make a symlink from the missing
file to the installed file.  I'm sure it isn't the most perfect fix,
but it's the quickest!  :-)
