First, thank you for your investigation.

With this patch, I can no longer compile ruby on my amd64, it dies
rather mysteriously with

./ext/extmk.rb:23:in `require': no such file to load -- rbconfig (LoadError)
        from ./ext/extmk.rb:23
*** Error code 1

Can you check on that arch too?

It seems to keep going on i386.
