After configure and compiling, I cannot say more as before, sorry.
It works for me.  I have done:

./configure 2>&1 | tee log.configure
make 2>&1 | tee log.make
make install 2>&1 | tee log.install

Everything compiles and all is installed in place now.
Works as before:)

$ ruby --version
ruby 1.6.5 (2001-09-19) [i686-cygwin]

I do redirection like shown above, that is o.k.

No, just post it. Better if you send it as attachment, so the output
gets not mangeled that much and is better readable then.

>Out.txt:

Up to here iyt is identical.

>gcc -g -O2  main.o dmyext.o librubys.a -lcrypt   -o miniruby.exe

gcc -g -O2 -s main.o dmyext.o librubys.a -lcrypt   -o miniruby.exe

Now here is a difference. '-s' is an additional flag here at my build.
'-s' comes with my standard LDFLAGS, that is also the main difference
in the Makefile. NOTE, for gnu make, GNUmkefile is the first Makefile.

And I get no error here. All builds fine.

No NT, no NTFS.
Win95 is pretty old nowadays...

One thing is interesting. As i built ruby-1.6.4 (IMO) it was build a
ruby.dll by default which it is not now, only a static ruby binary was
built.
