Thanks Chad for the response,

To start from the beginning,
I wanted to use bcc32 to build ruby,
but Nobuyoshi Nakada said that bcc32 support will be absolute.
Since I had no intention of using M$$$ compiler I asked for an 
alternative one.
I was lead to usign gcc (MingGW) which is free and can be used to build 
ruby
for Win32.
But I am stuck on how to build ruby using gcc:
For ms compiler the steps are:
 1.Execute win32\configure.bat on your build directory.
 2.Run nmake

But I don't know the step for MinGW.

Thanks in advance

With kindest regards
yc
