> python: Python 2.6 (r26:66714, Jul  4 2009, 17:38:03)
> 0MQ: 1.0.0
> I've located libruby in /usr/lib and ruby.h in /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-linux
> After executing:
> $ ./configure --with-python --with-ruby --with-ruby-libdir=/usr/lib 
> --with-ruby-headersdir=/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-linux
> I endup with "unusable Python.h" errors[1], if I just pass --with-python 
> option the check wont even happen and bindings won't be built at all,
> and if I just pass ruby-related options I end up with "no ruby.h"
