dumpbin /dependents ruby.exe:

File Type: EXECUTABLE IMAGE

  Image has the following dependencies:

    msvcrt-ruby18.dll
    MSVCRT.dll

dumpbin /dependents mysql.so

Dump of file mysql.so

File Type: DLL

  Image has the following dependencies:

    msvcrt-ruby18.dll
    WS2_32.dll
    KERNEL32.dll
    ADVAPI32.dll

  Summary

       DC000 .data
        B000 .rdata
        4000 .reloc
        1000 .rsrc
       3D000 .text

That indicates they aren't sharing the same dependencies, right?

BTW - thanks for taking the time to help me so significantly.
