Description of problem:
Ruby bindings are not currently being built.
The oVirt project is looking into using xapian for it search engine
functionality, and as a rails applicaiton, we need ruby bindings for the
acts_as_xapian plugin to work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. build xapian-bindings binary RPMs
2. look for xapian-bindings-ruby
3. it's not there...
ruby package isn't currently enabled in the spec file
We'd like to have the ruby bindings included.
I've built the ruby bindings rpm locally on my F9 system, and it seems to work
properly with some very basic testing, but I haven't done any thorough review of
the resulting RPM. I've attached my modified spec file

Thanks for the report and the patch, there is no reason not to build them.
