I'm not sure if WeeChat (I mean ruby plugin) is affected by this problem (after looking at the ruby detection in WeeChat, it seems different from your URL).

On which distribution do you have the problem with WeeChat/ruby ?

And more important, do you have the problem with cmake (recommended way to compile WeeChat) or with autotools (./configure) ?

Much like a bug that was in vim [1], weechat requires rubylib.so which on some linux distros requires ruby-devel to be installed (of course on most production servers, which many run weechat or irssi on for screen, they do not use ruby-devel).
