texlive-pictures package should depend on ruby

Bug Description

Binary package hint: texlive-base


Package texlive-pictures does not depends (or recommends) ruby. However, I found that /usr/bin/epspdf and /usr/bin/epspdftk depends on ruby.

I do have ruby1.9.1 installed, but both scripts call "ruby" directly and ruby1.9.1 provides the command "ruby1.9.1".

Just an small update, epspdf does not work in ruby1.9.1. It must depend on ruby1.8 (and libtcltk-ruby1.8 for epspdftk).
