Bug #3437: Does not compile on Windows with Visual Studio
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/show/3437

Author: Andrey Gerasimenko
Status: Open, Priority: Low
Category: build
ruby -v: ruby 1.9.1p378 (2010-01-10 revision 26273) [i386-mswin32_90]

When compiled with Visual Studio, compilation fails with the error message "cannot parse and attach manifest, file not found".

OS: Windows 7

Since ruby is more or less OK without a manifest, just entering "nmake" again allows to advance further and finally get ruby compiled.

With VS 2008 it is necessary to resume nmake about 3 times, just when final executables are being built. With VS 2010 it is necessary to resume nmake very many times.
