Yes, all those ruby gems are needed, if you plan to use the ruby
alternative wmiirc script. It uses rumai, which pulls in other deps.
None of them are currently in portage. I added use flags for ruby,
python, plan9port to the ebuild, too.

The Python alt script ships with the needed libs, so it worked out of the box.

I haven't actually tried the plan9port script yet, but did add the use
flag and dep to the wmii ebuild.
