My long pending problems with ruby are continuing. Now that ruby24 is going EOL, ruby25 is failing to install more than the documents into the image/ build dir, and thus failing to build the other dependencies (e.g. rubygems) when doing an "emerge dev-lang/ruby:2.5"
I attach all the evidence I have: emerge --info; build logs
Steps to Reproduce:
1. fresh Gentoo stage3 install
2. emerge dev-lang/ruby-2.5.8
fails after installing dev-lang/ruby on the dev-ruby/rubygems step
should have continued with rubygems normally

build log for ruby-2.5.8

build log for dev-ruby/rubygems-2.7.10
I looked at the jemalloc flag, and the build is '--without-jemalloc'
It looks to me that the real issue here is that dev-lang/ruby does not install properly. In the build log for dev-lang/ruby:2.5 that you removed it does show that only a few doc files are installed and consequently eselect-ruby cannot set the ruby interpreter. This also causes $RUBY to be unset.
It's not clear to me why dev-lang/ruby does not install more files, and I cannot reproduce it.
