I cant seem to find any substantial docs on the net for mkmf..

i'm trying to create a new C routine, but my compiler is mingw
yet mkmf/extconf keeps generating a Makefile for use with
cl.exe (microsoft compiler)...

how do I tell mkmf in extconf to use mingw instead of microsoft
compiler cl.exe ....... ???

the other thing is, how do I tell mkmf to include only certain
..c files rather than *.c? (or the inverse, what not to include?)

I have support files for unix/win32, and one cant be compiled
on the other (and shouldnt)..

but mkmf has just globbed *.c on me.. which is fine except for
1 or 2 files!!
