Laurent, thanks for fixing the bignum issue. OK I'll continue.
After updating to r2782, my rubyc successfully compiled all of stdlib,
and WOW!, all of build task completed! Thanks!

One of my intention of building MacRuby 0.5 trunk by hand is checking
status of regular expression against non-ASCII characters.

As I wrote in the comment I'v left;

a very simple regular expression including a Japanese character
against a string contains same character doesn't match.

It's very important issue for us, Japanese, and, I suppose, other
non-ASCII character languages.

How about the status of supporting non-ASCII character?
