Looks like I need to upgrade it for security issues; so I tried to compile
it from the ports area.
First it blew out my disk space (the "work" sub-directory), so when I
rearranged a few things to make more room it blew out my swap space!
On my box /tmp is "tmpfs" i.e. use memory first before overflowing into
swap; that's going to be trickier to fix... I guess I'll have to kludge
/tmp as a symlink into /usr/local or something, where I have heaps of
On the other hand I guess I could figure out what requires Ruby, and
decide whether I really need it.
What sort of disk farms do these developers have? I'm only a small-time
user and wannabe developer...
