Hi

I'd like to figure out how I can download and compile the latest version of
Ruby on Windows.  I know I can get Curt's one-click installer, but I'd quite
like the ability to compile it for myself.

Question is, which is the best (free) compiler for the job?  Visual C++ or
Borland? Or another?

I have tried to use the MS VC++ Toolkit 2003, with NMAKE 1.5 - both freely
downloadable from MS but as soon as I issue a win32\configure i686-mswin32
(from memory), NMAKE falls over immediately.  Can't remember the error
off-hand but if it's important I can run it again.

Am I using the right version of tools?  Should I really be using Borland?
(their CPP5.5 is also freely downloadable).
