8 Yes, this is true. We do this because normally ruby contains a copy of
9 rdoc. We unbundle that and thus the external rdoc implementation is
10 installed. You can control this with the rdoc USE flag on dev-lang/ruby,
11 but note that not installing rdoc is probably considered broken by
12 upstream.
14 Kind regards,
