I just saw this after portsnap fetch update when running pkg_version -IvL=:

ruby-,1                     >   succeeds index (index has 1.8.6)

Please restore ruby's PORTEPOCH - and consider installing pre-commit check
scripts on the CVS master server that refuse Makefile commits that make
the version go backwards.
