You version is so far back that the upgrade is hopeless. You have things
that no long exist as parts of portupgrade and your version can't deal
with that. It is easier if you delete the portupgrade, ruby-*,
pkg_tartup, and what ever is left and reinstall it.

FWIW, it works flawlessly now. I just recently upgraded to the 1216
version by using "portupgrade -rpuf ruby".
Just out of curiosity, wouldn't 'portupgrade -rR portupgrade' work as well?
