Fixing Metasploit Update

When I trying to running msfupdate 2 weeks ago, I'm getting trouble about updating gems, the Installing pg (0.15.0) can't installed because something wrong in configuration about ruby. After 2 weeks, I can solve this.
Ok, I will started from Metasploit update, when I'm running msfupdate, I'm getting error below:

Results logged to /opt/metasploit/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/pg-0.15.0/ext/gem_make.out
An error occured while installing pg (0.15.0), and Bundler cannot continue.
Make sure that `gem install pg -v '0.15.0'` succeeds before bundling.
Then while you running gem install pg -v '0.15.0', you will getting error too. So modify the file rbconfig in  /opt/metasploit/ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/i686-linux/. Edit via vim or whatever your favourite editing text tool.
root@bt:~# vim /opt/metasploit/ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/i686-linux/rbconfig.rb
 Change the configuration below:
CONFIG["LIBRUBYARG_STATIC"] = "-Wl,-R -Wl,$(libdir) -L$(libdir) -l$(RUBY_SO_NAME)-static"
CONFIG["LIBRUBYARG_STATIC"] = "-Wl,-R -Wl,$(libdir) -L$(libdir) "
Save and exit. Now, you can running msfupdate, after that, you can start msfconsole again. Ok, lets go to using metasploit for making payload and exploiting the victim. "i'm not a pentester, but just a beginner".
Happy Analyst!

I found that in my version 64x I had to run: locate rbconfig.rb and found it in a different path:
vim /opt/metsaploit/ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/x86_64-linux/rbconfig.rb
