[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: ruby-pgplot
Version: 0.1.3-5
Severity: serious
Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)

I was trying to build this new version for Ubuntu hoping it would clear the FTBFS, but it fails on Ubuntu and Debian as well.  Here's the snippet from the Debian chroot and the full log is attached.
