    It turns out that our automated fix for systems with missing 'ranlib'
    did not make it into our 1.1.0 release.  So there are two different ways
    you can work around this:
    1) Download and build the 'stable' version of the runtime instead (I'd
       recommend this: there are a lot of other bugfixes in the stable
    2) run your ./configure with the environment variable $RANLIB set to
       'touch', i.e.:
            RANLIB=touch ./configure ....
    Either of these should fix your problem.
    Keep us posted if you run into any other issues.
