[Fedora-packaging] Stupid question

Hey there,

I've taken over the ruby package, which basically is the first 
core-component piece of software on my relatively small list of packages.

Attached is a patch that was in ruby-1.8.6, and that I rebased to 
ruby-1.8.7. Since it's a really simple patch, I wonder why it's not 

I'm not sure what this fixes, in that ruby will build without the patch 
as well. I've searched through the logs to see if there's some kind of 
warning related to socket.c, but there is none from what I can tell.

I'd love to learn what this patch does and then try and get upstream to 
accept it (so that I have less work to do). Can someone on this list 
help me with this?

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,

Jeroen van Meeuwen
