error when emerging rubygems

I have successfully emerged ruby. When emerging rubygems I get an error:

>>> Compiling source in /var/tmp/portage/dev-ruby/rubygems-0.9.4/work/rubygems-0.9.4 ...
/usr/bin/ruby: no such file to load -- auto_gem (LoadError)

* ERROR: dev-ruby/rubygems-0.9.4 failed.
* Call stack:
*, line 1695: Called dyn_compile
*, line 1033: Called qa_call 'src_compile'
*, line 44: Called src_compile
* rubygems-0.9.4.ebuild, line 38: Called die

While searching for fix, I saw a thread that had me prepend rubyopt="" (I.e. rubyopt="" emerge rubygems).

This didnt help.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

So what is wrong with carrying on a conversation with myself?

I am running into a problem with running a ruby script that would query a mysql db.

Error: `require': no such file to load -- mysql (LoadError)

in my script I have the following:

require 'mysql'

Should I post this somewhere else, or is this thread ok for this question?
