Lyle Johnson found a similar error type of error with the cygwin build
of FXRuby (Fox GUI).

Check what version of cygwin GTK was built with. The standard cygwin
Ruby was built against cygwin 1.1.6 and when FXRuby was built against
cygwin 1.1.8 it gave a load error. Lyle graciously rebuilt FXRuby
against cygwin 1.1.6 and the problem went away.
