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,

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.
