Hi Kyle,

    x_ldflags=-L/usr/lib/ruby 1 -L/usr/X11/lib
    x_ldflags=-L/usr/lib/ruby -L/usr/X11/lib

Thanks for the report.  However, there is no such line in the source
file Makefile.in which generated that erroneous Makefile.  It says:
x_ldflags=@X_LIBS@ @x_linker_options@ @iconv_libpath@

So it would seem the `1' got inserted as a result of a configure test.
If you feel like pursuing it further, you could look at your config.log.
I don't see any practical way to debug it here.

On the other hand, if you didn't run configure (ie, Macports provided
the Makefile and not just the Makefile.in source, then it is a bug
for whoever generated it.


P.S. It also seems a bit odd that /usr/lib/ruby is included here.  Whatever.
