This is why anatolik's quarry repo whitelists the packages it will
build, and includes a configuration system for teaching ruby gems how to
depend on system dependencies, inject necessary patches, and do other
overrides for gems which don't work using just the barebones generated

Which is sort of the point here -- it's ridiculous to autogenerate 13K
PKGBUILDs, then upload them to the AUR without testing them.
