This is a known problem with the latest version of the port-config
for ruby.  Several people are working on a fix to it.  If you want
to compile ruby right now, you should be able to fix it by changing
the following line in ruby18/Makefile:

Where you see the line:
.if ${OSVERSION} >= 502102

change it to be:
.if ${OSVERSION} >= 502102 && ${ARCH} != "sparc64"

We do expect to have the ruby-port fixed for real, one way or
another, sometime in the next few days.

Let me know if that doesn't work.  I was testing on a sparc64
machine running 6.x-current, not 5.3-stable.
