Good question. There is a runstatedir entry in RbConfig::CONFIG, but indeed configure does how who a corresponding --runstatedir. --runstatedir is a commonly-accepted flag in autotools-based project, however. I'm not sure how this ends up in rbconfig, or if my passing --runstatedir has any effect at all. I would need to drop it and try again, but that is not a priority for me at the moment.
