I hope I've managed to fix it with the help of arekm - bug with ruby load 
modules paths probably has been appeared just after introducing autoconf-2.60 
which sets POSIXLY_CORRECT env. variable that changes, among other things, 
pdksh interpretation of escaped double quotes inside backticks (` `).
Fixed ruby.spec has been sent to Th and Ac builders.
