It's ironic, given that you're complaining about versions not being
specified, that you don't specify the version of kdebindings you're trying
However, for kdebindings-ruby (Gentoo splits the package) version 4.4.3, I
can confirm that Gentoo requires the "ruby18" slot specifically, which
corresponds to "Ruby (MRI) 1.8.x" according to the ruby-ng eclass
manpage. But I don't know if that's a gentoo/ruby thing or upstream.
Checking the kdebindings-ruby ebuild from the gentoo/kde overlay for
4.4.75 (kde 4.5 alpha, IIRC), and for 4.4.9999 (4.5 development branch
live build) and 9999 (trunk/head), it appears they all have the same
ruby18 requirement. 4.4.2 is still in the tree as well, but I didn't
