What got built?

    Some computer system administrators have placed "common" libraries and
    header files in non-standard locations which complicates building ruby.
    It can be done with a very long ./configure command, but their level
    of apathy usually means they get it wrong. For example, the readline
    package is in some utils directory that must be mentioned on the
    ../configure command line.

    Is there a simple ruby script that could be run (using the newly built
    ruby) that would report what was successfully built and what was
    omitted, etc. (and maybe what dependency was missing)? They could then
    hunt down their carefully hidden libraries and header files, etc., to
    build a "complete" ruby.

    Thanks!
