Hi guys,

Not sure if it is worth reporting but I guess it is better to
report twice than zero times, in the event someone else
already reported it.

I have compiled ruby from source lately.

The version is:

ruby 2.1.2p95 (2014-05-08 revision 45877) [x86_64-linux]

I downloaded it from this URL:


Now, I am using a debian-base system and I decided to compile
most stuff anew, including readline, ncurses etc...

Readline bindings of Ruby work well, but I have problems
with openssl.

I just finished compiling openssl from source:


I followed the LFS guide here:

This works, and now I have openssl 1.0.1i installed.

But ruby does not seem to like it.

When I go into ext/openssl, I run this command:

ruby extconf.rb

Now, many checks happen, and a Makefile is created in the end:

Next, I run make command:

compiling ossl_x509store.c
compiling ossl_digest.c
compiling ossl_pkey_dsa.c
compiling ossl_hmac.c
compiling ossl_cipher.c

compiling ossl_x509.c
compiling ossl_engine.c
compiling ossl_pkey.c
make: *** No rule to make target '/thread_native.h', needed by 'ossl.o'. Stop.

And here I do not know what to do. I do not know what is the header file
thread_native.h but it is in the same directory:


I did a cat, and here is what it is:


#if defined(_WIN32)
#include "thread_win32.h"
#elif defined(HAVE_PTHREAD_H)
#include "thread_pthread.h"
#error "unsupported thread type"


rb_nativethread_id_t rb_nativethread_self();

void rb_nativethread_lock_initialize(rb_nativethread_lock_t *lock);
void rb_nativethread_lock_destroy(rb_nativethread_lock_t *lock);
void rb_nativethread_lock_lock(rb_nativethread_lock_t *lock);
void rb_nativethread_lock_unlock(rb_nativethread_lock_t *lock);



I am not sure how to proceed here.

Is it possible to add a better error-description here so that
the user understands what is wrong? I believe something may
be wrong with threads on my system, but only in regards
to openssl perhaps?

If you can help me fix this error it would be very appreciated
too, as rubygems requires openssl (unfortunately).

Sorry for the strange last line, I did not intend to have python appear so big - the last line
was a set of = so I assume that the formatting automatically makes the last stuff appear

Ok, I recompiled ruby, and strangely enough, ext/openssl suddenly works.

Possibly it does something more than run extconf.rb or something, but it all works again now.
