This is happening in a lot of other cases, like "portupgrading" php5, 
"pkgdb -L", etc...

I was experiencing this on 8.1/i386, while 7.3/amd64 works fine. Right 
now I cannot do any further cross testing, i.e. see if 8.1/amd64 or 
7.3/i386 work.

On the incriminated boxes, I downgraded to ruby 1.8 and this is not 
happening anymore.
