Adding a config flag to specify ruby version
- Because vim is not compatible with ruby 1.9.x, many developers cannot build with ruby support unless they change their system ruby (or use rvm or the like). This has caused a problem for even basic users of package managers that build from source like brew (see thread here).
I've tried passing the full path of a compatible ruby to the --with-ruby-command flag, but I get the same build error. It seems I need to change my system ruby to get the build to complete. This article explains a workaround by modifying the output config.mk after running config, but I'd prefer to have this exposed through a config flag. Is this something the community would be open to having added? Although I've never worked with the vim source, I'd be happy to write the patch myself. I just want to make sure that the community is open to it before I dive in.
