#include <sys/sysmacros.h

added to bindings/ruby/linux_sigar.c
Comment 5 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2017-10-20 20:23:58 UTC
Ping - this is now blocking glibc-2.25 stabilization.
Comment 6 Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev 2017-10-21 06:00:31 UTC
This should now be fixed (in place since it is a built-time error).
