 Yeah, when `broccoli-ruby` is included as a sub-project and dependencies
 are not satisfied, it just gives a warning that the ruby bindings will not
 be built (i.e. it's an optional component).  Which means in some cases it
 might never get the chance to ignore your `--prefix` option.

 I still need to review the issues behind the decision to ignore `--prefix`
 (I'm not an advanced Ruby user), but it seems not good to me as it is.
